Can Alexa answer road (NOT traffic) conditions?
« on: January 10, 2018, 12:17:04 pm »
In preparing for travel here in the North County, we need to know road conditions, ie. snowy, icy, blizzardy, etc.

Is this possible or is there a skill for this? When we've tried asking Alexa this info, it responds with weather conditions. Also, we would look for multiple conditions, ie. at several towns along the route.

To the best of my knowledge does not have aspecific road condition skill. However you go into the app and enter your commute it will sometimes give you road conditions along with traffic density information.

Go to Settings in the app and select Traffic. Then, enter your starting point and destination. Keep in mind most road condition information is available only when the appropriate local weather forecasts mention it. Most of the time I do not see this information. Have a nice safe trip

Thanks Snakeyes.  I never even noticed "traffic" under settings.
