Because the Jam Factor calculation uses real-time speed and travel time measurements from our digital sensors and those of our partners, as well as our detailed accident, construction and congestion information, it’s a comprehensive measuring tool that is unique to Traffic.com. The Jam Factor is measured on a scale of 0-10, with 10 representing the worst traffic conditions.
