ABSTRACT
The article reports on the study conducted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the implementation of real-time traffic information systems. It states that to implement the program, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT's) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued a proposal in January 2009, to improve the traffic information's coverage, quality and sharing. However, since the proposed rule has not been completed by DOT, GAO did not make any recommendations.
