NTTA Continues Its Focus on Wrong-Way Drivers

WFAA News, in a lengthy report about wrong-way drivers, notes that the North Texas Tollway Authority has been using cameras to help spot those drivers more quickly. Eric Hemphill, NTTA’s Director of System and Incident Management, tells the station that some incidents involve drivers “who are going against traffic on purpose, ‘They missed a ramp. They realize instead of exiting I don’t know where I am going. They will pull over do a U-turn, go back to the next ramp and try to exit.  But they’ll go a mile or two trying to get back to that ramp.’”

CBS News Dallas-Fort Worth reports, “The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating an accident where investigators say a vehicle was traveling on the wrong side of the Dallas North Tollway early Saturday morning [November 5].”
