traffic xml data

P: n/a
Does anyone know of a service, that provides driving traffic information in
the form of xml? I see several large cities have information on the web,
including traffic cameras. traffic.com has an RSS feed which has some
information but when i looked at it, you can't really tell where the traffic
problem is.

The goal is to write a program that can take your location, such as zip
code, or road/direction/city, or lat/long coordinates and see if there are
traffic problems in the area, or better yet, look at each road along the way
for traffic problems. i can provide all of this information, but i need to
know where ot get traffic info

thanks!
