Traffic Visualizations for Surface Streets

Traffic Visualizations for Surface Streets

Is it just me or are the traffic visualizations for surface streets essentially worthless? I appreciate being able to see closed streets and jammed roads. However, what is gained from a little red or orange line in front of a traffic light? Is that just telling me that a signal is at that intersection? What am I missing? What is that little red or orange line really trying to tell me?

I agree.. and I've never seen live traffic info on the map, just those little fixed orange lines which don't seem to change and are clearly not real time.

Yeah, I was hoping for something more akin to the graphics in google maps or waze. I've been out after midnight before with no cars on the road and it was showing orange or red all over the place, especially at lights.
