Wrong-way driving detection technology unveiled on SH 45 SW toll road

Wrong way crashes make up three percent of collisions on divided highways. “That is probably the most tragic accident you can see on a roadway, the injuries are more horrific and it leaves families devastated.” said Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority executive director Mike Heiligenstein…

Expect to see the technology on the new SH 45 SW toll road this weekend.
It will be the first time the technology makes an appearance in Texas.

Keep an eye out for the TAPCO thermal sensors along the road. If they detect a car driving the wrong way, lights will begin to flash, if they continue driving the wrong way, authorities will be notified and can even get photos showing the make and model of the car.
