Wrong Way Driver Alert Detects Wrong-Way Driving and Assists Authorities
Wrong Way Driver Alert System develops mobile application that could help deter impaired drivers and becomes contributing partner with MADD (Mother's Against Drunk Driving)
CUPERTINO, Calif., April 11, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Wrong-way driving annually averages more than 350 deaths on U.S. public highways, and Highway Nation, LLC believes it has a solution that is both community-driven and automatically detects wrong-way drivers. The Wrong Way Driving Alert System is a free app for drivers that can be downloaded onto an Apple or Android mobile device and will run in the background.
“I have a background in both law enforcement and in trucking logistics. I’ve seen a lot in those years and all of it not good when it comes to driving on our highways. It seemed that wrong-way driving produced fatalities more than 90 percent of the time. Even with bright red ‘wrong way’ signs, the number of fatalities did not subside year over year,” said Edwin Bridges, Founder and President of Highway Nation, LLC. Edwin enlisted the services of JV Marketing Technologies, LLC, a San Diego-based firm, to help build the mobile applications. “When Mr. Bridges first started to explain what he wanted, we weren't sure if there were applications already out there that did what the Wrong Way Driver Alert System does. There wasn’t anything that we found, so we built our own map for the user interface and also a Wrong Way Police Alert System for subscribing police, fire and rescue or other entities that are tasked with monitoring traffic. The Wrong Way PFR (Police, Fire and Rescue) Unit receives push notifications from a detected wrong-way driver, complete with the time of detection and coordinates for approximately where the erring driver is.
Highway Nation has recently hit some major milestones in its progress:
Highway Nation with its Wrong Way Driver Alert System is proud to partner with MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) in the finding of solutions to stopping impaired driving.
On September 18, 2018, Highway Nation and its Wrong Way Driver Alert System was a featured software solution at the Annual Law Enforcement Recognition Event in Arlington, Texas, where officers were recognized for their hard work in deterring impaired driving. Edwin Bridges was a guest speaker at the Dallas Traffic Safety Coalition Meeting at MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) Headquarters in Irving, Texas on December 4, 2018 to offer information on this amazing piece of technology.
"We believe this application will help save lives by giving emergency response personnel advanced detection into wrong-way driving. And also, with a price tag of only $175,000 per annual subscription for the PFR unit that only emergency response personnel can have and monitors within a 50 mile radius of where it is installed, this could save taxpayers millions and provide a very comprehensive product for notifying necessary parties when a wrong way driver is in their midst and can be used as an overlay over existing hardware and hard-wired solutions. Follow them on Facebook and download the free app. Help us Fight Wrong Way Driving The Right Way!"
