WYDOT Revives ECAR System

ecar

The Wyoming Department of Transportation is looking to revive its old Enhanced Citizen-Assisted Reporting Program in time for the coming winter season.  Assistant Public Affairs Officer Bruce Burrows says it is hoped by having more eyes watching the state’s roads, the better and timelier condition reports will be. To that end, Burrows says it is hoped statewide motorists will volunteer to provide first-hand observations of the conditions they are encountering.  Burrows says very brief and concise training will be provided to those volunteers so they are familiar with WYDOT’s terminology for each condition they experience.  Burrows says volunteers are needed in some areas more where fewer observations are otherwise available than in others. Burrows says ECAR participants are supplied with an illustrated handbook which includes written and visual definitions of the different types of pavement and weather conditions used by WYDOT.  Those who would be interested in applying to volunteer may log onto www.wyoroad.info and select the ECAR link.
