Similarly to the Czech Republic, intelligent motorways are also built abroad. Equipping a road with telematic systems allows the increase of its capacity, traffic fluency, controlled queue elimination, and contributes significantly to reducing its accident rate and increasing its traffic safety.
Investment into telematic technologies are much more efficient than the costly construction of new roads. This trend occurs mostly in countries where the basic system of high-capacity roads has already been created and any further extension of the existing road network is limited by spatial, environmental, and financial opportunities. This part of the Czech Traffic Portal will present a gradually updated collection of telematic technology examples from various countries around the world. Here, you will find information concerning the current traffic situation in most European countries.
