FOG WARNING SYSTEM PROVIDES A SAFETY NET FOR MOTORISTS

Motorists on Interstate 75 in southeastern Tennessee now have the benefit of a fog detection/warning system to keep them apprised of adverse highway conditions. The warning system monitors conditions along a three-mile highway section that has a history of severe fogging events. These conditions have resulted in several severe reduced visibility related crashes. The most recent crash involved a total of 99 vehicles in December 1990, which resulted in 12 fatalities and 42 injuries. The project was developed by a Tennessee Department of Transportation committee of public safety, traffic operations, design, construction, and maintenance, and Federal Highway Administration representatives.
