Checking what the roads are like can be done from the palm of your hand.
Drivers are being encouraged to check road conditions before they hit the road using a province-wide app.
Ontario 511’s app is designed to let users see the road conditions, as well as any construction or road blockage from their smartphone. The app also allows users to bookmark specific traffic cameras, and track Ministry of Transportation plows.
It is free to download for Apple or Android users.
According to the website connected to the app 511on.ca. the app is partnered with a different app called Waze that users log onto to report traffic incidents.
