SCM gang:

I have added a new feature on the left side of the site that shows you current drive times of the 3 major routes into Big Bear (2 entries per route - one for each direction). This uses google's traffic platform (which uses cellphone data) to determine current travel time between two points. Note that this new feature is in BETA and will become part of a larger effort that will integrate chain, road construction, and closure information in the coming weeks. I will also be adding other routes to the system: For Example, some folks would like to see the commute time for the Arctic Circle (IE Big Bear Dam to Snow Valley). That route will be coming very soon. I am also planning routes to the western part of the mountains (IE Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline). You may see this platform format completely change over the coming weeks but I wanted to get something out there in Beta. I am also looking for suggestions on other routes that would be important to include in this traffic monitoring effort.

Note that the traffic platform is for reference only and should not be used for critical navigation. The data is updated every 15 minutes, however, cellphones used to calculate travel time on the google platform must complete driving the entire route before a calculation on travel time is made. So, a TC that happens at 1:30pm may not show delays on this platform until much later.

Would love to hear your comments, suggestions, and other things you would like to see. Now that we are integrating other realtime API's (programming interfaces), there are a lot of things we can do to provide you with the best information possible.

Thanks and take care!
-Craig

Nice... It's amazing what we can learn when the general populace is tracked at all times.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

Craig - you are awesome!

Question though When you say "Big Bear" - is that Big Bear Lake? Big Bear City? Or a general, middle of the valley area?

Great Question Cammy. Here are the locations used in the current Traffic Feature:

BIG BEAR: Big Bear Blvd at Summit Blvd
HIGHLAND: Hwy 330 at the Junction of the 210
MENTONE: Hwy 38 at Mentone Blvd
LUCERNE: Hwy 18 at Hwy 247 (China Castle Restaurant is right there).

I will be adding a Fawnskin to Idaho feature just for you in the future!

We can tweak these, this was just what I used for the initial beta of the feature.
Thanks!
-Craig

My Dad worked as an Engineer for Douglas Aircraft - McDonnel-Douglas and Boeing in H.B on Bolsa and loved his job to his retirement and was well respected for his knowledge. He worked on the simulators for the space station, some tests requiring to be present for over 24 hours. One time when he was working on one of the stages for the launching rockets, don't recall which launch it was, they were having a problem with the launch at the Space Center and wanted Dad to fly there to help fix the problem. Dad wasn't fond of flying and there was no way he wanted to fly there. He ended up walking them through the possible problem over the phone and was able to talk them through the process to get the problem fixed. I always thought that was pretty darn amazing.

OK so Marcel from the city said he drove by and there was only one car in the driveway. That they are allowed to have 10 people there and 4 cars. Like I said the "same household" doesn't seem to apply. What it means is nobody really cares, as long as the vacation rentals are full. I'm done, thanks for letting me vent.

Spice guy, did code enforcement do anything. It sounds like they made a call and that’s all? I’m seeing 2 places down from me with similar situation. One of the homes had 8 cars out front and the other one had 5. Same household? Right!

BaughHumbug Thanks for the info. We called code enforcement first thing this AM. He said he would call Destination BB. Later 3 men left & returned with about 8 stuffed full Stater Bros. bags. 10 people over there, 7 of them adults + 3 cars. Same household? It's a joke.
