12 News (KPNX) and Beat the Traffic have announced a new extension to their partnership. Beginning Sept. 14, the locally branded 12 News Beat the Traffic app was available for free for all Arizonan commuters looking for a way to beat traffic on the go. Over the air 12 News will continue to help commuters with travel times and the most up-to-date traffic information using Beat the Traffic technology. The new app offers yet another way to help commuters get the best information possible and includes personalized route information and reports by the 12 News team.
