Wrong-way Driver Notification System
Aug. 1, 2017
The Arizona State Transportation Board is planning a system to help prevent wrong-way drivers and will put the project out to bid. The decision follows its approval of a 3.7 million dollar plan to construct a thermal-detection system for a 15-mile stretch of Interstate 17. The Wrong Way Driving Detection Pilot Project will use thermal-detection cameras to sense wrong-way vehicles to alert drivers and authorities. We will hear more from Dallas Hammit, the Arizona Department of Transportation state engineer and deputy director for transportation, and Jim Windsor, a deputy state engineer.
