Radar, flashy LED signs, and text alerts are part of New York’s new, high-tech effort to combat wrong-way crashes on the state Thruway. The system is being installed at the Buffalo exit, followed eventually by the entire length of the 570-mile interstate highway. New York is the first state to utilize the radar system, which will trigger a flashing LED sign to alert wrong-way drivers. Other drivers will be alerted by signs and the Thruway’s Statewide Operations Center will get an alert that can be shared with local police.
