NOTE: If you want to make this more complex, you could have the the selection of image to be used via a table lookup. Could search the rows for a match in the details of what image to be shown (eg column 1 is Traffic mode) and thus the cell in the row of which image to use (eg column 2 is Traffic Colours label list).
