    Err, just because your in the "right" end of the Caleefornia doesn't
    make this the wrong end:)

    That's interesting, 511 only works in SF Bay Area, with the existing
    Trav Info service. Previously, Trav Info was accessible only by
    dialing 817-1717, no area code required.

    What other existing traffic or transit service numbers could CA
    callers use? SoCal must have a metro traffic/transit info service?

    The voice navigated, Caltrans Highway Info Network 800-427-7623, is a
    likely choice for non metro 511.

    Thanks for the tests. Remember only 511 is going to be a universal
    number.
    Only use 817-1717 in the SF Bay Area region. Apparently it is not a
    universal info service number and will likely be in use by a business
    or residence.
