Tripcheck : Is an online service of the Oregon Department of Transportation. Zoom in on the map and click on a camera icon, and you can see a current image taken by a camera at that location.

The stand-alone Google Earth program shows the locations of those cameras as icons. You can click them for pictures from the Google program. Like as not there's something similar in other states.

That one isn't nearly as cool as Beat the Traffic's version.

Florida has a good one that shows you the output of their many traffic counters, broken down by time of day.

I've been known to have Tripcheck's Portland cams auto-refreshing all morning. It's fun to watch the sun rise 2500 miles away.
