Know before you go with California Road Report, your best app for being informed of what's happening on the highway.

With California Road Report you can view CHP incidents, CalTrans road conditions, chain control, road closures, and find rest stops in California on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch on the go!

- View CHP Incidents in areas nearby or from a list of selected areas in either list mode or map mode
Each CHP incident reported contains the time of occurrence, location, and details of the incident.

- Hands-Free Mode - With hands-free mode, CHP incidents can now be spoken to you while you drive so you can keep your eyes on the road and still receive CHP reports. (note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)

- Search for CalTrans road conditions on any given highway in California
Ideal for checking chain requirements prior to driving in snowy conditions, knowing if there will be road work, or finding out if a particular stretch of the highway has been closed.

- Find out where chain control is being enforced during snow storms
While in map view you can pan around the state of California to see where chain control is being enforced or scroll through a list of all chain control areas in California.

- Find nearby rest stops
Need to take a break while on a long drive down the 5? Check out nearby rest stops and see their available amenities.

- See highway cameras
See pictures from over 500 highway cameras (with some including live video) in the state of California and also share them on Facebook, Twitter, eMail, and SMS.

- Road Closures
Avoid traffic by knowing which roads are closed or have lane closures.

Returning User

Pleasantly surprised to find this APP has been upgraded to work on current Apple devices.

Now the issue - though SFO is a reality nice place - the default opening of this APP to the SFO area is annoying. There are other communities / geographic areas of interest / concern to Users. As I attempt to move the map to the area of interest - the map disappears. All that is shown are the incident reference points. The map may reappear….. or I may need to re-start the APP.

Suggestion - consider a way to “tag” location(s) / geographic area(s) of regular interest or concern, thus allowing for a more rapid acquisition of related and relevant information.

Still love this app

I finally opened this app for the first time this season to check chain control and was surprised to discover the subscription model had been implemented for things that were usually free. I initially balked, for about five minutes... then remembered that I had been using the app for years for free, so the small yearly fee didn’t seem unreasonable and I signed up.

I live in the mountains, so I normally use this app for chain control notifications and CHP incidents along the long mtn highways to prevent me from driving to the bottom of the mountain, only to discover a crash and closed road at the bottom. It works great, especially in driving mode when it reads the incidents out to you. The app does other things too, but I’ve never used those features so I don’t know how well they work. But if you live or travel in snowy conditions, this is the easiest way to find chain conditions, and is well worth the yearly fee for this feature alone.

Love this app!

I’ve had this app on my phone for many years. Prior to downloading it I had the CHP site bookmarked to a screen, but had to deal with full site info on a small screen. Over the years this thing just keeps getting better. Traffic incidents (including response times and actions), rest stop locations (and whether opened or closed), chain requirements, traffic cameras (many of them live streaming), and road closures. If an incident isn’t showing on this app it is also absent on the CHP incident page. All this information is available on various sites if one takes the trouble to hunt for it, but it’s all here in an easy to use app.

This app has had some ups and downs, but the developer responds to questions and suggestions in a timely manner and puts effort into its improvement. Personally, I end up wasting short stretches of time looking at the various traffic cams...especially during snow events.
