Traffic alerts available for New Jersey

Taking regular turns in and out of New Jersey? Real time traffic alerts are now available through Intelligent Imaging Systems (IIS), in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

The state joins North Carolina in offering the in-state alerts through IIS’ sister company, Drivewyze.

Messages like “sudden slowdown ahead” and “congestion ahead” come through ELDs and other in-cab devices about two to three miles before a slowdown begins. The information is also in real time, with the congestion and incident data coming through Inrix, which partnered with IIS for the slowdown notifications.

The traffic and slowdown alerts are added to other in-cab safety notices through Drivewyze, referencing curves, low bridges, steep grades, and runaway ramps.
