The real tragedy is that most could have been prevented using GreenRoad’s Proactive Low Bridge driver alerting system.
GreenRoad’s Low Bridge Alerting system sends real-time alerts to drivers when they head for a bridge too low for safe passage – in time to take an alternate route. It works by combining GPS vehicle location data, mapping services and a pre-defined database of low bridge hazards to feed GreenRoad’s real-time alerting system.
Alerts can be delivered audibly via speaker, and/or visibly via LED panels. The system can also alert drivers about other pre-defined hazards and safety hotspots.
