New Doppler radar signs will warn wrong way drivers

ALBANY, N.Y. – Drivers in New York State may notice new signs soon.

In order to cut down on drivers going the wrong way, Doppler-radar-enhanced LED signs have been installed at an entrance ramp on the Niagara Expressway in Buffalo. Those signs will soon be installed at Exit 10 on I-87 in Nyack, where serious accidents have occurred.

 Doppler-radar is used to detect vehicles traveling the wrong way and it will instruct drivers to pull over and turn around when it is safe to do so.

The sign will also trigger automatic alerts to other drivers.

The technology will be expanded to several other locations in the Empire State.
