How can I check motorway and local traffic information if I don’t have a smartphone?

Most car radios have two features that you can use to help you plan your route and avoid traffic jams. There’s a feature you can set up called TA (Traffic Announcements), which changes the channel to regular traffic reports whenever they’re broadcast. Or you can use TP (Traffic Programme), which helps you find only the radio stations that regularly broadcast traffic reports.
