Ohio DOT Wrong Way Vehicle Detection System
Represents a system that senses a wrong–way driver and then activates the flashing beacons near static Wrong Way signs on an exit ramp. Nearby cameras take timestamped photos of the vehicle going the wrong way to send to law enforcement. ODOT is testing the system as part of a pilot program, with the first system installed on the West 28th Street exit ramp on the Shoreway just west of downtown Cleveland.
