Who pays for this?

There is usually an AM radio station with traffic info. AM radio stations provide local traffic info fairly regularly. This is not a necessary service IMO and should not be taxpayer funded.

Actually my experience with those AM stations that you see signs for is poor.

So much interference and static in many places they were practically unintelligentable.

And if you weren't very familiar with the area, their descriptions and suggestions when you can hear them mean nothing.

I think they're more concerned with local commuters than anything else.

I have no idea if this arrangement will be more efficient or better.
