    • NTTA INSTALLS THERMAL CAMERAS TO DETER WRONG-WAY DRIVERS
      9/8/2020 11:00 AM
      PLANO, Texas, Sept. 1, 2020 – The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) has initiated a thermal camera pilot program to detect and deter wrong-way drivers. Signs pictured below are located on the south end of the Dallas North Tollway. Video of flashing signs, thermal cameras and generic thermal camera imagery, can be found here

       

      Using heat emitted from a vehicle, thermal cameras monitor the regular flow of traffic. When a vehicle drives in the incorrect direction, signs flash “Wrong Way” – warning a driver to correct their error. NTTA’s Safety Operation Center receives an alert, staffers notify DPS Highway Patrol and overhead message signs warn drivers of a wrong-way driver on the road ahead.

      “Safety is NTTA’s number one priority,” said Assistant Executive Director of Infrastructure Elizabeth Mow. “We will monitor this pilot program, assess results, make improvements and determine if it can be used on other NTTA roads.”
