The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe operation of their vehicle.

Do not text and drive (it's against the law) or use this app while driving.

• We made it easier to see the extent of road closures by adding a solid red line on the map along with the closure icon.
• We added another feature to our real-time parking area feature that will show a flame on the parking area site details, if it's filling up fast. (hint: turn on the rest area layer).
• We added a satellite image view to the rest areas that don't have camera images to display.
• The weigh station icon got a refreshed look.
