Stuck TMC events
5 days ago, there was an accident on the M1 which was reported on the TMC. It was a long stretch on the southbound carriageway.
The problem is that the accident was cleared, but the event stayed on the TMC. For 5 days! So everyone going up the M1 with TMC was being told to go on a long diversion.
So I emailed TMC here:
TMCForum.com :: TMC FAQ
And got a reply saying that it was down to the provider that Honda use. Which is Trafficmaster.
A couple of days later, a kind gent from Trafficmaster took the time to write this:

Thanks for the info.
One of the reasons why I purchased a TrafficMaster Q-Busta to supplement the built in system.
I find the Q-Busta more accurate as it reads data directly from the roadside beacons and not via radio stations which I find tends to be delayed.
The bonus of the built in system though is that it gives a bigger picture whereas the Q-Busta only works within 'earshot' of the beacons and only reports a 10 mile radius.
Horses for courses
