WYDOT ribbon-cutting ceremony

The Wyoming Department of Transportation hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a connected vehicle project to reduce crashes and make Interstate 80 safer. WyDOT officials used several vehicles, including a snow plow and a Wyoming Highway Patrol vehicle, to illustrate how the technology communicates with vehicles — sending a forward collision warning, a distress notification, a construction zone notification and weather warnings.
