googlemapstraveltime.jpgThe Transformers movie, starts at 4:30. If you aren’t from Los Angeles, you may think that going from Santa Monica to Westwood would take you 10-15 minutes. You’d be wrong. Locals will tell you that 40-50 minutes is more realistic and, until now, Google Maps had the drive time listed at 10 minutes.

Now, there’s a second time displayed just below the original time. Google Maps has added the drive time that accounts for traffic delays. The delayed time is┬ábased on traffic speeds along the route you need to travel. Thanks Google. Now we’ll be in your seat in time to see all the previews.

One thing: Real world travel times like traffic maps is not yet available everywhere.
