Savvy hates nothing more than being stuck in traffic, especially jams she doesn’t know how to get out of (removing red wine stains from the carpet, this she can do. Figuring out the back roads of Havre de Grace when 95 North gets shut down? Not so much.). That’s why she’s thanking heaven for Tom Shock and Your Traffic Angel (yourtrafficangel.com
). Those of us with a tiresome commute will wonder why we never thought of this before— hiring someone to monitor our route and instantly text our cell if there are problems reported. Tom even offers live help from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays so you can call in with questions about when an accident might be cleared or ask for an alternate route or directions. Considering the time he saves his clients, Tom’s service is amazingly cheap, a mere $8 a month. Like that old chestnut says, every time you don’t spend 20 minutes stuck in stopped traffic with the rest of the traveling public, a traffic angel gets his wings.
