The traffic jam on the 140 between Cookeville and Lebanon is more than likely to be caused by something like an accident, roadworks or even something as small as a broken down vehicle or merging traffic.

It is difficult to predict exactly what it is without being given a time or date, however in general, traffic jams are usually caused by the previous suggestions. The best way to keep informed of the current traffic issues is to ensure you have the traffic reports option switched on to your radio. Your radio will be interrupted by details of the traffic situations of local roads in the area; your area will be picked up by the radio waves received. This is an invaluable function of the car radio, especially for those who travel a lot or during peak times.

It is always best to know before you reach a traffic jam what the problem is, as this will allow you time to decide whether it is likely to be a long lasting jam and therefore opt for another route. If you do not know the area, it is also handy as they will often provide information about possible other routes which will enable you to miss the traffic jam.

In addition to the usual culprits of traffic jams, there can be other possibilities which are less common. For example, the jam may be caused by hurricane warnings, flooding, fallen trees, fallen power cables, animals on the road, police check points or terrorism threats. Again, knowing the cause will help you to decide on what action to take.

There are also Apps which can be downloaded on to your phone or iPad which will give details of traffic problems; some even have settings which you can set to beep when there is a traffic jam on your route. This can also be done on some of the more recent Sat Nav systems.
