I like the ability to quickly see freeway information signs. Here’s the news release from Caltrans:

SACRAMENTO – Caltrans today announced it has launched Caltrans QuickMap, an
online service that provides California motorists with real-time traffic
and travel information that will allow them to make better decisions about
