The TomTom Traffic Incidents API offers easy visualization of congestion on the road and exposes detailed data about incidents, delays, causes and speed. Developers can retrieve details about incidents, start-location, end-location, road-name, type of delay, length (in time) of the delay, significance, and distance. It is powered by the trademarked TomTom Traffic portal and displays real-time data of prevailing traffic conditions on selected roads. Users can use different zoom levels to view details of incidents, such as traffic jams and delays, right from the starting point to the destination point of a route. The RESTful API sends requests in HTTP and returns responses in JSON, JSONP, or XML format.
