Wanted: Motorists To Report Road Conditions

Wyoming Dept. of Transportation

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation is looking to expand participation in a program that recruits motorists to report hazardous road and weather conditions.

The Enhanced Citizen-Assisted Reporting is similar to how the National Weather Service uses weather spotters.

ECAR volunteers are first trained by WYDOT staff on what to report. They then can call and relay real-time information about hazardous road conditions back to the state.

ECAR was started as a pilot program in 2006 and has about 300 volunteers.

WYDOT’s Cheryl Argento tells the Associated Press that more volunteers are needed because the more information WYDOT receives, the better the state can send advisories or prioritize where it dispatches plows or road crews.

People interested in signing up can do so by contacting WYDOT.
