Why Doesn't This Exist?

Gloria was taking Eli to Magic Camp this morning and was stuck in traffic for almost an hour.

I thought about that for a while. Then I realized that there was a solution, if this app actually exists.

How it would work is that the user would highlight a route on Google Maps, then set times and dates when the route was "active".

During those specified time periods, if traffic reached "red" on the route in Google Maps, the app would text your phone with a traffic warning. Plus you could set a special sound effect for the text source, so you wouldn't even need to read the text--you'd know from the sound effect while driving that you needed to go on an alternate route.
