Tennessee launches new 'Smart Way' app for motorists

GasBuddy Blog -- Just before Christmas Tennessee launched its new TDOT 'SmartWay' Mobile App to help drivers navigate Tennessee highways, providing up-to-the-minute customized traffic information.

Tennessee launches new 'Smart Way' app for motorists – good for TDOT and smartphone users! Like they said: Drivers should 'know before you go!' by checking traffic conditions before leaving for their destination.
Motorist should never text, tweet, or use a mobile device while operating a vehicle.
Or a GPS manufacturer can do the same thing with their units and the traffic feature.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Tie it in to TomTom and other GPS information devices, including driving alternatives, then we have something. Wonder how much this cost the Tennessee taxpayers or is this another federal government grant? Plus an additional amount of money for a 'data' plan if one doesn't have an android phone.
