RAC Traffic shows incidents, delays and roadworks for the whole of the UK, including Central London, England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland.

Key features:
- Real-time traffic incidents
- Advanced warning of planned road works
- Create routes and be notified of incidents along your routes
- Pin routes to Start Screen as Live Tiles
- Call RAC Breakdown in case of emergency
- Store RAC Membership details

RAC Traffic will allow you to check unplanned road incidents and delays at anytime, and view any problems textually, or displayed on a Bing map. Using the location service built in to your Windows Phone Device, RAC Traffic will show the nearest traffic problem to you, or by choosing a region you are interested in, the nearest traffic in that region.

RAC Traffic allows you to pin your routes to your Start Screen so that you can periodically be informed of any traffic incidents along your route.

Zoom in on the map and zoom out to see traffic on major and minor routes in the UK. This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date data available in the UK and shows current incidents and expected delays.

View by region or current location and zoom in to traffic problems using the text to read the actual problem and decide how you want to avoid the incident. Use the in-built Bing map to look at options to avoid any trouble and carry on with your journey, stress free. Scroll around the map and switch to map-mode for a full screen view of incidents around the UK.

    Great app. Keeps me up to date (within reason) of the traffic situation on my daily commute

    Never seems to show the jams I get stuck in. Often I'll go past the same jam on the way back and it still doesn't show. It didn't even show the 50mph limit for long term roadworks at the M1/M6 Junction.All in all pretty pathetic.

    Slow. Needs improving. Worked great on android

    Very useful and nicely presented. Use this everyday before the commute

    This has the potential of bring a very useful app. However, it is often too slow to report traffic issues. Other apps that do a similar job will show slow-moving traffic when this app is reporting no issues.

    Largely inaccurate

    Good traffic info in my area but saps battery life, even what app is not active on the screen.

    A little sluggish at times but otherwise data is very useful.
