Far too often, law enforcement and emergency medical teams see the horrific outcomes of secondary crashes. They know what can happen to stranded motorists/pedestrians on freeways.

Getting off the freeway after an incident, even if it means driving on a flat tire, can save your life. Visit www.onlyawhiteline.org for more information. #ItsOnlyAWhiteLine

What the HELL is going on with TRAFFIC at Bellaire and Fondren???? WHO are these men that are controlling the signals and creating mass clusters???????
CAUTION: Coming southbound on 288 right when you get to the new pattern divide at the 610 loop, it is flooded bad and you cannot see it, it is also flooded in the lower curve going under the 610 west overpass coming down 288, stay in the far right lane there!
The #2020Census is here, and the results will #ShapeYourFuture of the U.S. and your community for the next 10 years. We challenge you to respond now at 2020census.gov. Tag your friends and family and challenge them to respond as well. It only takes a few minutes to complete online at the link below. https://my2020census.gov/
I was thinking about the signs we used to see tallying the annual fatalities on Texas roads. It would be nice to think there is a silver lining in the reduction of traffic injuries/fatalities in the area, any numbers?
Merry Christmas 🎄 to y’all. Keep the coffee ☕️ hot and be Blessed over the Holidays. We appreciate the work you do in helping to keep us safe on the roads. 🚗🚙🚚🚛🚔
Galveston Causeway update?
It would be nice if transfer could develop a heat map with traffic information. The way it is organized online now isn't very easy to read.
I asked a couple of months ago, and it's been messed up for over a year - but is there any chance you can put the cameras in proper order for 290 here? It's all out of whack.
Mash potatoes, not your bumper! Be safe, Houston.
Mash potatoes, not your bumper. Be safe, Houston!
Would be great if someone could update the message screens in 288 South. This is definitely confusing drivers and causing unneeded traffic.
Can you tell us where LYFT or UBER can pick us up after the game with all the street closures? HELP
