CARS 511 System




CARS (Condition Acquisition and Reporting System) is a road reporting system that creates a multi-state database of highway events. Authorized staff use CARS as a centralized database of incidents and other traffic-related situations at the statewide level to facilitate the sharing of travel information with the public and with external agencies. CARS provides a single point of data entry that supports information dissemination via multiple media.
