MoDOT Takes New Approach to Stopping Wrong-Way Drivers Using BlinkLink Technology

    The Missouri Department of Transportation is using BlinkLink, an innovative and resourceful technology to stop wrong-way accidents. The BlinkLink technology uses radar, cameras and sensors to detect a wrong-way driver. The system then activates flashing lights on a wrong-way sign in hopes of getting the driver’s attention to turn around. BlinkLink then sends MoDOT real-time notifications of the suspected wrong-way driver. Law enforcement is notified and messages go up on DMS boards alerting other drivers to be on the lookout. MoDOT installed BlinkLink on various ramps along I-44 in St. Louis City.
