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 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.

Great and really helpful!

Update: Nice to get a response from the developer indicating he’s working on updating this app. The highway camera feature has been restored. Thanks! . . . .

WHERE ARE THE HIGHWAY CAMERAS?!?! This app WAS great until I installed the latest update yesterday. Now when I select highway cameras, there’s nothing there (says “0”) I really relied on the visual especially of those highways in the high country.
Such a bummer not to have them. Please bring them back!

I downloaded this app the other day as we were planning a trip over Donner Summit and I wanted to stay on top of the road conditions. Each time I checked, the info was current with the requirement for chains/snow tires and the storm conditions. The app is easy to navigate. You choose from the list of either interstate highways, state highways or other roads. You then get up to the minute conditions. Perfect! I also like that you can link to the highway cameras that are available for that highway to get a visual of conditions. Also, information is provided for rest stops and what amenities are available. Thanks for a great, reliable app!!

I’d give this app 10 stars if I could.
I drive throughout California for business and road conditions sometimes make the difference between making it one time or even making it at all. I’ve used it for six months and has helped me spot traffic jams before I get to them, calls out hazards, rest stops, and construction before I even depart. Can activate when I’m driving.
ONLY COMPLAINT: When driving, the map doesn’t track my location. I must swipe the screen to keep up with myself, if not, I drive offscreen. Am I missing a setting to enable that or is the tracking function a bug itself?
Anyway, great app maybe an App Store mvp.

Great for Trucking

I love this app! I’m a truck driver and I use it all the time to see if there is chain control over Donner Pass!

I was so disappointed when there was an update and you got rid of the ability to check each highway by its route number, such as I-5 or I-80, thank you for bringing that back with the highway button/icon!

The only thing that seems to be missing is the location arrow that let’s you zoom in or highlight the areas that you are currently in. I really liked that feature as I can’t use my fingers to find myself on the map while I’m I’m driving. If you could add that back I’ll give you 5 Stars!

(Update) Thank you for adding the location arrow back, loving your app and appreciate that you actually care about the users of your app! Great job! Also, there should be more 5 star ratings, this app does what it’s supposed to!
