I posted this on your twitter, but it may have slipped through the cracks. I want to offer up a suggestion for something I have heard you repeatedly ask for on FRD.
You want to be alerted that traffic is bad when going to pick up your daughter so you know which route to take. Since you primarily use an iPhone this is a simple solution.
Create a reoccurring calendar event to pick-up your daughter at the specific time you need to arrive, be sure to add the location to this event of her school, then add ‘Travel Time’ and select ‘Based on location’.
Your phone will alert you daily when you need to leave and you will know if it is alerting you earlier than normal to take your preferred alternate route.
