How do you navigate around the city traffic of the Nicholasville Road “traffic light escapades” or “escape from Newtown Pike,” and perhaps bypass the bypass in Versailles due to unforeseen road issues? Give the Waze app a try. It works well when you need to know the location and severity of traffic before and along your route. What works best with this app is when other happy “Wazers” share their knowledge of existing conditions in real-time.
There are few drawbacks in which I believe are minimal: (1) data usage if you have limitations on your data plan and (2) no walking feature on the app. Regardless, the 2-3 or traffic issues I have run into occurred when I didn’t use the Waze app on routine trips. Also, I figure the data usage of this app minimal for routine use based off a recent trip from Lexington to Lawrenceburg that used 0.3 MBs. That being said, I recommend this app for everyone and wish you all safe and swift travel throughout the Bluegrass using Waze!
