'Haltrans' At Caltrans - A Stop And Go Tour

Posted: Updated:

Honk your horns...turn on your blinkers or flash your brights...because it's time for "Haltrans" at Caltrans. Hal Eisner is dodging the traffic commute at the Caltrans Traffic Management Center.

We have your "stop and go" tour of what they do to help your drive.

For more information about Caltrans, check out the Department Of Transportation official website HERE.

 

From Hal Eisner:

LIVE from CalTrans' Traffic Management Center we showed you the many people who watch you when your driving on LA freeways. They're not watching you in your car. They're watching the flow of traffic trying to improve it. When there is an accident they send out resources to help deal with congestion. There are over 10,000 electrical sensors under our freeways that help them know when traffic is slow as molasses or moving briskly. That information ends up on websites and smart phone apps to help you make the right choices before starting your trip.

For more information go to Quickmap.dot.CA.gov or www.dot.CA.gov

And, one more thought. These guys and gals in the TMC are just like you. When they're in traffic they say they hate it. Difference is they're trying to make it better! 

On FOX 11 this morning we invited you to write in questions for CalTrans officials. As promised we asked quite a few of them and here are some of those answers. On the hot seat are John Yang and Judy Gish with CalTrans.

    It's no secret that Microsoft has struggled in the hardware department so I can't say whether the Surface Pro 3 will be the hero Microsoft needs but I can say it is the modern computing experience users deserve. I love it and think you should too! Read on to find out why.
