Analysis of Dynamic Advisory Messaging

Winter weather and its corresponding surface conditions impact the safety and mobility of thousands of motorists annually. Highway agencies spend millions of dollars (in resources and personnel) in an effort to ensure safe and efficient travel. However, regardless of maintenance investment and activities, other factors, particularly driver behavior during imperfect conditions, can significantly impact mobility. Other innovative, cost-effective strategies may be necessary at targeted locations to better inform motorists of conditions and influence their behavior. One such strategy is dynamic advisory messaging triggered by atmospheric, surface and/or traffic conditions.
