Summary:
New Jersey and Colorado DOTs are using crowdsourced data and private sector partnerships to deliver real-time information to commercial vehicles and improve the safety of all road users. Because commercial vehicles have far greater stopping distances, unexpected slowdowns on roadways pose a significant safety threat, particularly at the back of queues. Transportation agencies can now deliver in-cab alerts about road conditions through connected truck service providers to help commercial vehicle drivers approach and react more quickly to roadway incidents, work zones, and adverse weather conditions.

Register for the upcoming Crowdsourced Data for Commercial Vehicles webinar to learn how New Jersey and the Colorado Departments of Transportation are improving roadway safety through in-cab alerts and broader truck information (e.g., parking or inspection). This webinar is a part of the Adventures in Crowdsourcing webinar series sponsored by FHWA Every Day Counts Round Six (EDC-6) Crowdsourcing for Advancing Operations Program. To learn more, reach out to Program co-leads, James ColyarGreg Jones, or Ralph Volpe.
