THE JAPAN ROAD TRAFFIC INFORMATION CENTER AND ITS SERVICE SYSTEM

The Japan Road Traffic Information Center (JARTIC) was established in January 1970 as a juridical foundation with permission of the National Police Agency and the Ministry of Construction. Its stated purpose has been to provide road users with accurate and prompt collected information about roads and road traffic in an integrated manner. The JARTIC collects and offers diversified information to road users about roads and road traffic on expressways, general national highways, etc., through its nationwide information network of 53 regional centers and 92 stations located between Hokkaido and Okinawa. To meet users' varied and sophisticated needs for road traffic information, the JARTIC connects on-line with systems of traffic police and road administrators to integrate the available road traffic information. As the JARTIC establishes more information collecting facilities and processes information by computer, the collection of information becomes more sophisticated. Also, the JARTIC uses collected information that is sophisticated both in quality and quantity by on-line connections, and automatically offers this information to road users in real time. The JARTIC offers road traffic information to road users by radio, television, telephone, and other media. In the future, the JARTIC will automatically and immediately offer on-line collected information by telephone and facsimile services on new road traffic information offering systems. Also, the JARTIC offers on-line information to third parties that develop information services by new media.
