TrafficLand®, the largest authorized aggregator of live traffic video in the U.S., announced that the historic snowfall this winter in the mid-Atlantic region drove record usage of its live traffic video products across TV stations, local radio/TV/newspaper web sites, radio traffic reporter usage, first-responders, government agencies, www.trafficland.com, and more.
The TrafficLand infrastructure is built specifically to handle peak demand events and was therefore heavily utilized by federal, state and local public safety agencies, including first responders throughout the region affected by the recent snowstorms, as well as local and national TV broadcast partners such as CNN. The company’s network includes video from thousands of traffic cameras in over 100 markets across the U.S. and continues to expand as distribution agreements are finalized.
“We are very pleased that our traffic video services were used by so many people and partners during this unprecedented winter,” said Lawrence Nelson, CEO of TrafficLand. “The word is spreading about the value of TrafficLand’s national traffic camera network and how useful it is to be able to see your real-time local road conditions.”
