Toll Way tweets holiday traffic

December 27th, 2012 at 5:09 am

Toll Way tweetsWith the increased use of social media and smart phones, the Illinois Toll Way has decided to create a Twitter account. The toll way tweets to provide drivers with information for each of the four toll ways: the Tri-State, Jane Adams Memorial, Reagan Memorial, and Veterans Memorial toll ways.

Travelers now have to option to follow each of the toll ways on Twitter and can receive real-time roadway incident information, according to the Illinois Toll Way.

The Illinois Toll Way Executive Director Kristi Lafleur shared in a news release, “Toll Way Trip Tweets will help us connect to our customers in a new way and, hopefully, give them the information they need to be able to plan their trips based on what’s happening on the road.”

The tweets include updates such as information on roadway conditions, accident reports as they happen, and updates on congestion, according to the toll way.

Details in the tweets may include real-time information about the type of incident, the location based on the nearest crossroad and milepost and the subsequent impact on traffic, such as lane closures, said the Illinois Toll Way. It was reported that as many as three messages may be sent using Twitter for each incident. The final tweet will be the conclusion and clearing of the incident from the roadway.

Toll Way Trip Tweets are issued automatically from the agency’s Traffic Operations Center, Traffic and Incident Management System, which is staffed from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.

To follow Toll Way Trip Tweets, you can visit the Too Way’s website and click the Toll Way Trip Tweets “Follow Us” button. Or, visit www.twitter.com to set up an account, and then follow: TollwayTrip90, TollwayTrip94/294, TollwayTrip88, and TollwayTrip355

Even with many extra precautions being taken this season to keep drivers safe, there will still be accidents. If you find yourself at fault of a traffic violation this season, contact a traffic law attorney for help today. The Law Offices of Christopher M. Cosley can help you today.
