The Georgia Department of Transportation installed its first Emergency Motorist Aid Call Box Pilot Project in May 1999, installing 147 cellular / solar powered call boxes on I-185, a rural Georgia interstate. This report includes results of the pilot project evaluation, which determined the benefits and effectiveness of call boxes and provided future deployment recommendations based on experience from the first year of operation. A Preliminary Report based on the first 6 months of call box operation was published in the 2000 ITS America Compendium of Papers. This is a follow up report that includes an analysis of the first year of operation, beginning June 1 1999
