It is a Web-based service for traffic-based driving directions available on Bing maps in over 70 cities across the United States. ClearFlow provides real-time traffic data to help drivers to avoid traffic congestion by offering information for alternative routes and supplies traffic conditions on city streets adjacent to highways.
