      Hi Kenneth,
      Sorry, I’m not really sure what you mean by your comments. The Highway Webcams are one of the most viewed and used websites across the entire public service. We are always looking at ways to improve service, adding such features as REPLAY THE DAY and related weather information. I will certainly pass along your suggestion of “real time” to our webcam folks. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to let us know.
