Caltrans is running a two-year pilot program to reduce the incidences of wrong-way driving. The pilot contains three elements: firstly, the use of responsive “wrong way” and “do not enter” signs, which display warning lights when a wrong-way driver is detected. Secondly, a wrong-way driver detection system, in which video cameras detect wrong-way drivers, and send both alerts and vehicle photos to traffic management centers. Thirdly, the use of a video system that logs wrong-way drivers’ behavior so that it can be better understood.
