Today, INRIX and Drivewyze announced a new partnership to bring real-time dangerous slowdown, queues, and road closure information to truck drivers operating the Drivewyze Connected Truck platform.
Leveraging INRIX Dangerous Slowdowns, Drivewyze is able to convey safety events at a highly granular level to provide the maximum reaction time for commercial truck drivers.
“It takes 66% longer for a truck to stop as compared to a car, but truck drivers can be ready for that scenario if a warning is given in advance. That’s why we’re so excited about partnering with INRIX and working with state DOTs in bringing this free service to commercial truck drivers.”

The new traffic congestion notification service is being offered to all states and it will operate across the entire U.S. Interstate System. Already, INRIX has added a new ‘Commercial Vehicle Safety Alerts’ option to its master contract under the I-95 Corridor Coalition’s Vehicle Probe Project, allowing 18 states along the eastern seaboard to contract for this turnkey service via the Coalition.
State DOTs and road authorities can work with INRIX and Drivewyze to activate this commercial driver alerting service on their road networks.
