Update: cam.aipode.com has all Brisa's webcams in a neat iPhone interface. Oh, the sweat joy of laziness. Thank you Carlos for the nice job.

I have to commute to Lisbon every day, through the 25 de Abril bridge. So, every day I need to check the traffic on the bridge, and choose the best alternative to get to my job. And since I'm a lazy person, and don't want to spend more than a minute checking the traffic, I've built a page in my blog with all the webcams I need to make my driving decisions.
