NCDOT testing out new technology to help reduce wrong-way crashes

No one expects they will be in a car accident in the Cary area. Unfortunately, many are affected by a car accident that is caused by another person's negligence. There are many ways for a driver to be negligent, including drinking and driving, texting and using a cell phone while driving and driving the wrong way on a road. The North Carolina Department of Transportation is testing out new technology to help prevent accidents.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is testing out new technology to help prevent wrong-way accidents on North Carolina roads. Between 2000 and 2017, over 160 people were killed by wrong-way drivers. The North Carolina Turnpike Authority is testing this technology on the Triangle Expressway. A portion of the road has cameras and sensors that alert drivers they are heading the wrong way by using flashing lights. The system also alerts the highway patrol and the State Traffic Operations Center of the vehicle's location. Since the test system has gone into effect, several drivers have attempted to enter the turnpike going the wrong direction, but were able to reverse course and get back in the right direction. The Turnpike Authority is planning to expand the technology to the rest of the Triangle Expressway and the Monroe Expressway.

An unexpected car accident can change a family forever. When a loved one is seriously injured or killed in an accident, a family can face thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses along with the emotional trauma of dealing with the accident. Personal injury legal options can include visiting the accident scene and interviewing witnesses, reviewing police reports and helping determine what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
