An App That Helps to Keep Drivers Safe

Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) - The Wyoming 511 app helps keep drivers safe. It has more than 150 thousand downloads. All users are able to get voice updates while they are driving.

Truck drivers can find available parking at truck stops. Pictures can be taken and submitted to the transportation management center showing road conditions. This can help influence what alerts may be sent out.

Along with the voice update, there is a hope to make photos available to users of the app this winter. For now, those are only seen by the TMC.
