The feasibility of using local access cable TV as a driver information tool is explored. A literature review and a series of interviews were conducted and are described in the report. A survey of commuters in the Seattle metropolitan area was also conducted and is described. Analysis included developing a probabilistic model and using a computer-based model developed by the Federal Highway Administration. An implementation plan and evaluation strategies are provided. Conclusions include recommendations for further research.
