When I hit up maps.google.com, it goes to my default map. Is there way to force it to show me traffic so that I don't have to hit the Traffic button?


Use this link instead:


The trick is in the ?layer=t query string ;)

  • This link will also work on the mobile website (and you can set it as a bookmark on your home screen to avoid typing it every time). – eisb May 1 '13 at 16:01
