Check traffic online:
On all French toll highways you listen to realtime traffic information on FM 107.7, in the Alsace and Lorraine area with a little chance on FM France Bleu Alsace or Lorraine.
The downside: Only in July and August they might announce their information also in English. For a foreigner it is easier to check online.
