    • Abstract:
      Introduction Motorist aid call boxes are used to provide motorist assistance, improve safety, and can serve as an incident detection tool. More recently, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications have been added to call box systems to enhance data collection for traffic data, weather data collection and dissemination, fog detection, and video surveillance equipment for incident and congestion management. Motorist aid call boxes are often combined with other services such as motorist assistance patrols, police patrols, CB radio groups, and surveillance equipment to enhance safety and congestion management. This report is written in response to House Resolution No. 1, by Representative Downer from the 1999 regular session of the Louisiana House of Representatives. The resolution requests a study regarding the upgrading of call boxes along Louisiana=s interstate system to a cellular-based system. The study is to include an analysis of the technology available in the call box industry and a cost analysis of the proposed upgrade. A task order to undertake this study was issued to Louisiana State University. In order to address the resolution, the study was divided into a number of tasks that included a literature search to identify and define the available technologies, a survey of other state highway agencies, a survey of manufacturers, a survey of state police, and the preparation of cost estimates. This report summarizes the information provided by that study.
