Traffic data via RSS

Lots going around about the ability to view traffic data for your through RSS via Yahoo, but I found this post on John Resig’s blog where he has created a simple form to easily create the RSS feed URL.  Essentially, instead of trying to build your own URL, you just enter an address or zip code into John’s “Location” field, pick a radius from the “Radius” drop-down, a severity from the “Severity” drop-down, and the form will produce the URL for the RSS feed.

Looking through the comments, I then found this utility that mashes traffic data together with a Google Maps (note that it also works when you click over to the Satellite view) — cool!
