Safe Spring Break Driving

March 5, 2012

Spring Break traffic will be here before you know it. As a safety procaution, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) wants to remind you to check the Florida 511 System for traffic updates before leaving to your destination.

FDOT has recently joined Twitter and 12 new Florida feeds featuring the same traffic information as the phone system. The system provides updates on crashes, congestion and construction on Florida’s interstates and toll roads.

Anyone call 511, visit, download the 511 app on iTunes or follow any of the several Twitter feeds for traffic updates.

The 511 system is offered in English or Spanish. You can even register for personalized services to hear information about a specific route. Go to for more details.
