FDOT considering using more in-road solar lights to deter wrong-way drivers at freeway exit ramps

“The Florida Department of Transportation is now considering using Internally Illuminated Reflective Pavement Markers (IIRPMs) as an additional countermeasure to deter wrong-way drivers from entering freeway off-ramps. This is in addition to the flashing signs that are already used. . . The Tampa Bay area has been the site of several recent deadly wrong-way crashes, including one that killed Tampa Police Master Patrol Officer Jesse Madsen.” See More . . .
