    detour dan HA!
    how on earth would "KTAR traffic reporter "Detour" Dan Beach" know anything about this? unless it happened yesterday. the dude clearly isn't even in arizona by the way his traffic reports go. example - this morning he said I17 southbound had just light slowing all the way down from metrocenter to the durango curve. meanwhile we're sitting at a complete stop and made several more stops on the way towards downtown. danny boy is always at leat 20 minutes late on any incident. by far the worst of all the radio traffic reporters.

    John B....you're an idiot
    I was right there when this all happened. I literally exited on University right after teh accident accured. You might like to know that Detour Dan was already hovering over the accident BEFORE the emergency vehicles even arrived. In this case, Detour Dan WAS the first responder. Dan has always been accurate from my experience and he does a great job. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK DAN!!!

    John B is
    smoking crack. Your "complete stop" in traffic has obviously pissed you off. Dan is one of the best traffic reporters I have ever heard. Stop, take a breath and chill. Have a better day John. Great job Dan!

    Detour Dan is a fraud!....
    You believers are the ones who are idiots. This guy has claimed for years to be over a certain area and yet when you look for a plane/copter, there is nothing. I lay claim that he is in the traffic center most of the time looking through ADOT cameras at best. He should be called "Eastside Dan" too since he doesn't even know there are freeways amywhere else to report on.

    Detour Dan is in a Plane
    Not a helicopter. If you saw someone hovering, it was NOT Detour Dan. Most of Dans reports come from the DPS dispatch and police radios as well as the DPS information site. The traffic info would be just as accurate if there were no helicopter, but at times Dan can provide up to date info on length of backup or tips on alternate routes, which are always, inevitably, "the 10 to the 43 to the 60".

    That is all your opinion is worth. Last week during one of his broadcast Dan said he was over 43rd Ave and I looked up and there was the traffic plane. Dan has always been spot on with accidents as he gets them. As a former limo driver he saved me from being stuck in traffic on numerous occasions.
    Often anti-social, always anti-fascist.

    One traffic reporter?
    for the whole metro area? I'm from Southern California, where they have so many traffic helicopters I'm surprised the mid-air collision didn't happen there, and multiple all-news radio stations to take calls from driver. This is a big metro area, with more freeways every day, and if a report isn't completely up to date, maybe it's because he's at the other end of the valley! I'm just thankful we have SOME traffic reporting here.

    Rodney and ThatGuy - It's plane, not chopper
    You do realize that Dan is in a plane and not a chopper, right?

    Yep, just the 1
    I am from Southern California too and it was nice having mulitple reporters. KFYI here used to have 2 planes in the air. My theory is that after 911 happened the owners of KFYI realized how much money they were spending to operate the planes, they stopped using planes and started using ADOT cams. I think Detour Dan is the best. I even suffer through Mac and Gaydos so I can hear his reports.

    He is the only reliable source on the radio. I even suffer listening to Mac and Gaydos on the drive home so I can get his updates.

    Surprized.
    When I heard about this and the RV my first thought was; snowbird poking along in the fast lane, all the time in the world, on vacation, while someone needing to get to work today cuts it too close trying to get past the rolling road block... Well, enough wrecks happen when faster traffic tries to get past slower traffic. Please everyone, hang up the phone and get out of people's way.

    Uh Huh Rodney...
    ...and who is the idiot? I hate to be the one to tell you that the "chopper" is probably a news station since Eastside Dan is "supposedly" in a plane. So I think I can see which IDIOT needs to pay attention. I also didn't realize how many "Eastside Dan Groupies" there were here. My bet is you all work for KTAR, the buttcrack of Phoenix media.
