The new year usually brings in thoughts of resolutions, goals and general improvements to our lives. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has one more suggestion to add to this list for motorists in Florida: consider using the Florida 511 Advanced Traveler Information System (FL511).
Florida 511, is a comprehensive system to help motorists navigate Florida’s roads for any trip – near or far. The system includes a website, mobile app, Twitter feed, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube pages. The goal of FL511 is to provide real-time traffic 24/7. How does FL511 do this?
The system provides traffic information in real-time: crashes, congestion, blocked roads, stalled cars, weather, and current camera images on major roads and in major metropolitan areas throughout Florida. It also provides turn-by-turn directions to up to three destinations in Florida, travel times, alerts, and personalized accounts. The mobile app provides select features found on the website. The goal is to help motorists travel more efficiently and safely on Florida’s roads.
FL511 is available as a tool before motorists start their trip. They are encouraged to check the website and/or mobile app for current traffic conditions, so they can plan their drive appropriately. Follow and join us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube for additional updates and, in the meantime, safe travels in 2022!
