Make a new year's resolution to avoid traffic delays! Total Traffic has live reports on Radio & TV, we send out our information to hundreds of websites, including our own site here: http://totaltraffic.com/LocalTraffic/ as well as to many personal navigation and mobile devices.

Also, some of our local offices even have pages, with more to come in 2013. We are committed to helping you save time in the new year!
We are very fortunate to have our own camera network across the US that we can use to help us monitor the traffic, however our newest camera is something very special. We now have a High Definition camera that is live in New York City today that offers an amazing view of Times Square JUST in time for New Years Eve!
We received a terrific press release from MTA in New York about a unique art exhibit. If you live or plan to visit NYC, you should check it out!
MTA Arts for Transit Brings Marilyn Monroe to 42nd Street. New Photography Exhibit, “Marilyn in New York,” Features Works by Sam Shaw.
The image of Marilyn Monroe stepping over a subway grate as a gust of wind sends her skirt twirling is the very definition of the phrase “iconic image.” The MTA is giving new life to the photo and other rarely seen photographs taken by the same photographer at a new exhibit at two locations on 42nd Street featuring the work of photographer and filmmaker Sam Shaw.
The iconic image was shot above the Lexington Avenue Subway in 1954 by Shaw, who had an early and long-time association with Monroe. In 1957, the two spent a day wandering around Manhattan, taking photos in Central Park, along Fifth Avenue, and elsewhere. These images are showcased in an MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design Lightbox Exhibition in two locations.
Eight photographs from the day-long photo shoot can be seen in the 42 St-Bryant Park BDFM7 subway station. A supersized version of the iconic subway grate photograph is on view at 42nd Street and Broadway, just outside of the entrance to the Times Square subway complex.
Together, the installation offers New Yorkers a view of rarely seen photographs of the actress in unguarded, playful poses, captured by her friend and longtime photographer. Capped by the iconic photo at the subway, but in a print that offers a different perspective, Marilyn meets her public in the highly visible venue of Times Square, a place appropriate to her fame. The pairing of Hollywood icon with the teeming crowds at Times Square and the 42nd Street subway riders introduces Marilyn to new generations of New Yorkers and visitors from around the globe.
“The New York City Subway made Marilyn Monroe’s most iconic image possible through its serendipitous updrafts from our sidewalk ventilation grates,” said Lester Burg, MTA Arts for Transit’s manager who handles the lightbox program. “And now the image is returning home through the MTA’s program to enliven the subway with engaging photos by New York photographers. Matching the mass transit setting with a pop culture figure beloved by the masses seemed like a great fit.”
For more information, check out the MTA's page here: https://www.facebook.com/MTA.info
The exhibit pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe on the 50th anniversary of her death and is part of the Sam Shaw centennial.

We are very proud of our morning staff in TTN Tampa for their assistance in an emergency situation on Thursday morning.
"TTN Producer Courtney Bright asked the chopper team to take a look in the water near the Skyway Bridge due to many units being listed on the Pinellas EMS website. Photographer Tim Harper spotted the police activity on the bridge as well as rescue boats in the water. Shortly after, Tim spotted a man's body in the water and noticed that the rescue boats were far away from the right location.
Courtney called Pinellas Fire Rescue and let the officer on the line know that the TTN chopper was over the search at the Skyway Bridge and that the photographer had spotted the body. Tim then relayed to Courtney exactly where the boats needed to travel to find the body and she passed it along to the officer on the line who was in direct contact with the rescue units in the water. The rescue teams were able to immediately find the body.
Kim from Bay News 9 called Courtney afterwards to say that she received a phone call from the Pinellas Fire Rescue chief and Joel Granada and that they wanted to personally thank the guys in our chopper for saving them tons of time this morning."
Great job Tim & Courtney!
Checking our traffic reports is important every day if you want to avoid getting stuck in unexpected traffic delays. Can you imagine sitting for three days behind over 10,000 cars stretching across 120 miles? It happened this weekend in Russia. Yikes!
A weekend standstill involving 10,000 vehicles between Moscow and St. Petersburg refocused attention on the state of Soviet-era infrastructure.
Have you ever experienced "road rage"? You are not alone. However, do you know that it can cause health issues? A new study that is featured in an article on CNN.com highlights the health impact that comes from feeling trapped in heavy traffic. Another great reason to check out our TTN Traffic Reports!
The stress of waiting in gridlock can leave you feeling frustrated and anxious. That stress can translate into deeper health hazards.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us a TTN! We have several ways to check traffic today.
1. Check our website here: http://totaltraffic.com/LocalTraffic/ for real-time traffic updates

Thanksgiving Traffic Tips: Boston & Worcester, courtesy of Traffic Producer Emil Geither, Operations Manager Katie Hutch, and the TTN Boston Staff.
Wednesday, rush hour will begin by 1pm. Traffic will fill up quickly on the Mass Pike, especially exiting to Rt.84. Traffic has been known to back up from Boston to Sturbridge. Expect the Expressway to be a mess early, from the city to Braintree. 93 NB should be heavy from Wilmington up through the NH state line. Rt.128 is usually very heavy in both directions.
The good news is that, barring any accidents, things start winding down around 5 in the afternoon.
Thursday – Usually very quiet. Enjoy the calm. :)
Back Friday – The biggest traffic jams are usually approaching the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets (Rt.495 at Rt.1A). Also, the regular spots: Burlington Mall, Liberty Tree/North Shore Mall, South Shore Plaza.
For Worcester, the same Mass Pike stuff as above for Boston, however add Solomon Pond Mall for Black Friday.
