The new Weather Telematics data, combined with the video verification provided by TrafficLand’s network of over 25,000 state and local Department of Transportation roadway traffic cameras, and other TrafficLand partner data sources, creates one of the most complete resources available for all hazard weather data affecting driver safety.
