Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Coalition news conference.

You've seen them on the interstate – those electronic signs warning you of congestion or an accident ahead. Maybe you've noticed those funny looking light poles that really aren't lights at all – they're cameras and sensors. Or now instead of getting your traffic information from TV news or on the radio, you can get real-time traffic reports when you want them by calling 511 or logging on to JAX511.com. The use of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is changing the way we travel every day. This broad range of electronic and wireless technologies is used for freeway management, traveler information, traffic control and construction zones, emergency services and accidents, trucking, rail and transit operations, military operations and homeland security, and special events.
