Idaho Drivers Use 511 System- A LOT

Well Idaho, you've proven yourself to be a state of prepared drivers. Between phone calls and visits to the Idaho 511 Traveler Information Service website, the 511 system has served 2.28 million people already this winter! That tops the 2.11 million who accessed the service during the entire 2008-09 snowy winter season.

Idaho's 511 system helps motorists make safe travel decisions by giving them access to an array of condition reports before they leave home. Drivers can view highway conditions on more than 80 cameras strategically located throughout the state, check the latest road and weather conditions and quickly determine which routes offer driving challenges.
