What's New in Version 3.1.2
- In an effort to generate a new source of revenue, WSDOT is conducting a digital advertising pilot project to allow commercial advertising through its websites, social media tools and mobile apps.
Traffic map virtually unusable
I used the old old "app" which simply took you to the website. While this wasn't ideal and the website wasn't very mobile-friendly, I could still take a glance at the overall traffic map, see where the bad spots were and make quick adjustments. Now the little flags showing all of the traffic cameras take up the whole map and you can't see a thing. Ridiculous. There should be a way to turn these off (if there is, I can't find it). Looks like I'll be going back to the website.
Seriously? Reservation system is awful
After six attempts a reservation was made. This is supposed to be for a phone? Be careful! Way too easy to think you are all set. Password strength is too high. Too hard to get back to your reservation. Way too many clicks and checkboxes. This is not NORAD. Lastly, stop worrying about your $10 no show fee. How about you pay MORE for the ticket and simply offer no refunds after 24hrs?!?
Still useful but not sure about why ads were added but if it saves taxpayers money for the dev and maintenance I can live with them
