I've been looking at all of the traffic cams on WAVE3 TV, but I can't tell if I'm catching rush hour traffic or just regular traffic.

Thanks.

I'd say rush hour is 7:45 AM to 9 AM and then 4:15 PM to 6 PM. Does that sound about right?

I think that overall, we are very lucky with having relatively light rush hours.

Okay, I'll check the cameras out during those times. I have been looking for the "sea of red tail lights" that signals bottlenecks and accidents plugging up traffic, but I haven't seen that yet in the cameras. In fact, so far, I haven't seen any "parking lots" on the freeways in the mornings/evenings. That's why I can't tell if it's rush hour or not.

Now I did see what I think might have been an accident situation. This was on Sunday around dusk in one of the cameras down by water and multiple bridges. The cars were not moving, and I could see flashing red and blue lights. But that was not a rush hour type of situation - just an unfortunate accident.

Many thanks!

It's usually worse in the mornings with everyone diverging on downtown, as opposed to the late afternoon, when everyone is scattering in different directions.

Okay. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

I listen to WFPK online and there are daily accidents on the afternoon home commute, but I think that's to be expected. I know I hit "rush hour" one afternoon as I was traveling into the city from S. IN, but it was just a merging issue and it cleared up rather shortly.

Now, that's the kind of phrase you always want to hear in connection with traffic. Many thanks.
