Question about trafic data when building routes

Hi MapQuest team, we have 2 questions about using your API to build routes:

1. if start time is in the past while useTrafic true, would the API take the trafic data at that exact time in the past;

- if so, is there a limit how long into the past can the start time be?

- if not, what trafic data would be taken into account (or would the request fail)?

2. if we set start time into the future, what trafic data would be taken into account? Average over a certain time for the indicated day of the week and time of the day?

- if so, over which time period would this be averaged?

The Directions API considers
The Directions API considers average traffic for the time and day of the week. It does not use traffic from/for a specific day.
