TMC is perfectly capable of doing that now. It's the quality and speed of acquisition of the traffic data that's the real problem.

I still use my TrafficMaster YQ2 daily, in spite of having TMC on the sat-nav. It works from the same source as most of TMC's 'live' information, but gives you an information feed that's much closer to real-time than the TMC info. In particular, TMC seems very slow to remove a problem once it's gone away in real life: I've lost count of the number of times TMC has tried to route me round an area when TrafficMaster has told me it was clear. Where the two disagree, it's almost invariably TrafficMaster that gets it right.
