    Default Not Hours, Days

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I know of no sites that monitor intercity traffic, there are just too many highways!. A few states will let you view their traffic monitoring web cams, but again these are mostly in urban areas. Nevertheless, I can assure you that you cannot get from San Diego to Fort Worth in 18-19 hours. Not going to happen, No way. That drive is 1330 miles, and the only way to make it in the timeframe you envision is to drive 75 mph for every second of those hours (no gas stops, no food stops, no bathroom breaks, no slowing for traffic, no stopping for red lights) and by the end of it, even if you could do it, you'd be a highway-hypnotized, sleep-walking zombie. You need to think in days, not hours, for a trip of this magnitude. At the very least it will take you two full days of driving to make that distance. Don't forget that you lose two hours to time zone changes as well. The rule-of-thumb that we use around here, derived from real world experience, is to assume that we can cover about 57 mph when all stops and slowdowns are factored in.
