Sometimes it’s enough to make you 👿
Fear not! The City of West Palm Beach just partnered with Waze GPS App (owned by Google) to update the public with real-time traffic information.
So now before you leave your house you can map out your route to avoid road closures and traffic.
The city is using the Waze for Cities partnership to accomplish this.
Waze’s primary goal is to be your partner in mobility. That means getting Waze-reported incident data to government officials who can help, whether it’s a five-car pile-up or a pothole. It means getting data from government partners to ensure Waze drivers have the best real-time, location-based information about what’s happening in their communities. And of course helping cities improve congestion, sustainability, and access through carpooling.Waze for Cities website.
Check out these case studies that show how Waze has worked with other cities.
“The City is increasingly using data and technology to help improve the lives of our citizens, business owners, and visitors,” said Mayor Keith A. James. “The information-sharing partnership with Waze helps us to communicate with the public and inform decisions. This is one of many steps we are taking to utilize technology to improve quality of life and shape our city’s future.”

Last Sunday the World Polo League kicked off their Sunday Afternoon Polo at Grand Champions Polo Club.
Go down Lake Worth Rd for as far as you can go, and then swing a right and you will have arrived (just punch this into your GPS: 100 Lake Worth Rd, Wellington, FL)
Yes, I know it’s a bit of a drive from Clematis Street, but I think you’ll be impressed by the beautiful Polo fields and the quiet that’s only broken by the sounds of the horses, music and announcer. It’s an experience that you simply can’t get in West Palm Beach.
The Festivities were kicked off by Wellington Mayor Ann Gerwig, Grand Champions owner and president Melissa Ganzi, Polo Players and their celebrity guests.
The World Polo League is the only 26-goal polo in the world outside of Argentina. The Sun Sentinel article talks about how WPL is keeping 26-goal Polo alive in the US.
The events are all live-streamed on ChuckerTV. Here’s WPL 2020 schedule:
The event is sponsored by Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, and the cool new CoCo Cabana Stadium provides 3 levels of entertainment.
Tickets range from $15 to $250 (top level of the Coco Cabana). Sunday featured WPL games at 4 p.m. at Grand Champions Polo Club are on sale now at www.worldpolo.org.
