Google LatLong: Arterial traffic available on Google Maps

Arterial traffic available on Google Maps for selected cities (including Minneapolis).

It seems they are doing it from Google Maps for Mobile, and getting automatic feedback of location from GPS-enabled online users (and thereby deriving speed). Clearly this is a good thing for traffic data nerds, and critical mass for arterial travel times is a good thing, even if Google winds up being the dominant provider.
