New App Lets Drivers Report Traffic Problems To Politicians

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The next time you're stuck in traffic, Ed Rendell wants you to write a letter to your congressman!

The former Pennsylvania governor is behind a new app that allows drivers to email their senator or representative about traffic problems.

It's called "I'm Stuck," and it works for airport delays, mass transit and everyday trouble spots.

Rendell says the app will encourage congress to get serious about fixing our roads.

"We've got to increase our public safety," Rendell said. "We've seen those horrible bridge collapses. We've got to eliminate waiting in traffic to improve our quality of life. And, almost best of all, investing in infrastructure repair creates hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs in construction and manufacturing, jobs that can't be outsourced."

Of course, wait to use the app until you get home. It's not safe to text and drive.
