Transportation is the driving force of any country. Today the authors are facing an explosion in the number of motor vehicles that affects the daily routines. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aim to provide efficient tools that solve traffic problems. Predicting route congestions during different day periods can help drivers choose better routes for their trips.
