This post is great and it is a great new feature! Cool!

The harsh realty is that some times you just drive over 520 and woooops: no go. You fetch your iPhone and check google maps, but... Car can not grow wings and you should pass this freaking bridge. So... Some places may have detours, but some... do not.

Anyway, while this feature unlikely solve bridge traffic accident congestions or add more parking in down town in pick time, it may be useful for time estimation during particular time ( as go to SETAC for example) and is very nice addition to already great maps :-)
