How do you get your road condition information? Email alerts? On Twitter @DriveBC? Watching BC HighwayCams?
Before the internet, before television, heck – even before radio, British Columbians have been exploring this beautiful province in their cars; and ever since those cars started rolling out and about – highway travellers have been looking for information on road conditions. That is where our journey to communicate road condition information began and it continues to this very day – the safety of the travelling public is our first priority after all.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of DriveBC (the traveller information website), take a trip down memory lane and learn about the many ways we have communicated road condition information with you over the years (radio, television, fax, telex, ministry weather stations, 1-800 numbers, websites, SMS messaging, webcams, email alerts, Twitter, Facebook to name a few).
Wow – quite the list, huh? It’s been an exciting ride and we’ve been honoured to take it with you. Do you have something to add or a comment to share? We love making a connection with you, so let us know in the comments below, on Twitter or Facebook… Safe travels all.
