road meteorology

Ice, frost, fog, cross-winds, heavy snowfall or rainfall are such meteorological phenomena that cause imminent danger to the safety of road traffic. Early warning against hazardous weather phenomena and effective prevention in road maintenance are key factors in increasing safety on the roads. Modern road weather support systems are an efficient tool for aiding road administration services in their fight against the weather threats on the roads. Road weather support systems are also used in the anti-icing protection of runways.

Road weather systems help to: 

  • enhance traffic safety,
  • restrict the number of accidents and collisions,
  • keep the road network mobile under winter weather conditions,
  • save anti-icing or de-icing materials and other resources used in the prevention of black ice,
  • make efficient use of personnel and road equipment in winter conditions,
  • optimize winter maintenance planning.
