(PRESS RELEASE) AMSTERDAM, 17-Oct-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — TomTom announces availability of the second generation of its Road Event Reporter. The easy-to-use web-based application allows road authorities and trusted TomTom partners to help drivers avoid unnecessary delay and frustration by reporting current and upcoming road events.
“Government agencies, automotive and logistics customers, as well as drivers in general rely on TomTom’s real-time traffic information to keep moving, so capturing as much information as possible on road closures and other events is absolutely critical for us. That’s why we’ve developed our next-generation Road Event Reporter tool which is even more intuitive for cities and road authorities to use” said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, VP Traffic and Travel Information, TomTom.
Road closures and events can now be reported to hundreds of millions of drivers more easily. Drivers can find new routes and stop congestion from forming when cities and road authorities announce roadworks; event organizers can announce races, festivals, or street markets that might disrupt traffic; critical information can be added in real-time by trusted partners to enable the most optimal driving experience for their customers.
The map-based TomTom Road Event Reporter is free-to-use and is available in 81 countries where TomTom provides real-time traffic information. The tool for reporting road closures, works and events allows the visualization of traffic flow and incidents.
