Site Update

  A while back ago, we decided to start this site as a little side project to benefit our friends and family and eventually the public. Over time, this project was put on the back burner. But now that we are trying to start a new group of websites, this site might have a chance to come back to life along with a mobile version. But this process may take awhile, as many obstacles are still in our way. We hope to be able to redesign this site under our main project. The project is still under the planning process. Meanwhile, we will try to fix up this current site to be able to work effectively. Thank you for your patience.

We have a new feature!

Today, we have added a new feature to our homepage. In case you haven't noticed, it is the "Gas Prices at a Glance" tool. We believe that people will find this tool useful when visiting our website. We have received a lot of requests for it and here it is! I hope that it doesn't make you feel like it serves a reminder of how gas prices are way too high. But I do think that gas prices are way too high.

Tell us what you think of the new feature by using our Contact Form.

Good News for IE users!!!

Our traffic cams page has been re-coded to let IE users view the page properly! Now our website is fully IE and Firefox friendly. Thank you, users of our website, for letting us know of the problem.

We aren't sure if all pages show up correctly in Opera so it would be appreciated if someone could try our website using Opera and tell us of any problems.

If you find any problems with our website, tell us by using our Contact Form.

Again, thank you for your support and tell your friends of this website!

Are you tired of high gas prices? We can help!

No, we can't lower the gas prices, but we can help you find cheap gas in your area! We can also give you ways to save gas, either by finding ways to improve your gas mileage, or by finding other options, like taking public transportation. Click here for more information.

Do you have a suggestion?

If you have a suggestion for our website, just tell us! Do you want a new feature? Do you know of a new camera source? Use our Contact Form here to tell us your suggestion. If you want to, we can even refer to you when we use your suggestion. Just tell us!

You will soon be able to view a real-time traffic map of Bay Area freeways on this website. The unfinished feature can be found here. It is currently being finished and tested.
