Beep, beep! Make way for the traffic reporters!
Yesterday, our traffic reporter friends from TV channels 3, 5, 8 and 39 spent time with us at the Traffic Management Center for our annual FAST Media Day event.
FAST, the Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation department that manages all signal timing and technology, provided updates on our collaboration through the regional event management group and asked for input on how we can communicate better during critical incidents. Media also met several FAST traffic technicians with whom they interact regularly via phone or email.
Communicating traffic incidents and updates to the public requires partnership, and we value ours with the media.
