According to News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, the Michigan Department of Transportation has finished installing new safety cameras targeting wrong-way drivers on the eastbound I-94 exit ramp to Sargent Road in Jackson County.

The Wrong Way Alert System is designed to help prevent motorists from driving the wrong way on freeways.  Cameras in the system detect when a car is driving toward it.

When that happens, high intensity red LED flasher lights mounted on each side of the wrong way signs are activated, warning drivers that they are going the wrong way.

The alert system is the first of its kind in their region and is part of their mission to increase safety and prevent crashes.  The new cameras are expected to be operational by early December.
