Traffic camera views can be accessed in the traffic layer which can be turned on by clicking on Traffic in Bing Maps. Clicking on this brings traffic information that’s overlaid on roads.
Zoom in and traffic camera views pop up, like the camera on I-90 in the Seattle area shown in the picture above.
