ABOUT OUR PROGRAM: 
Traffic Watch is a voluntary monitoring program that provides critical freeway communication during "peak" travel hours in the 4-county area.  For 2 hours each morning and 2 hours each afternoon, Monday thru Friday (except holidays), licensed GMRS operators can obtain communication links with law enforcement, public agencies and the news media in reporting accidents, traffic flow situations, or more drastic situations requiring emergency response.  

PROGRAM RESPONSIBILITIES:
Operating on the assigned frequency of 462.675 MHz, Traffic Watch monitors receive freeway reports from
 CREST Communications members and other licensed operators.  Significant information is passed directly to radio stations for broadcast to the public, thereby greatly benefiting commuters.

Monitors may also advise freeway reporters immediately on their contact of adverse conditions on their route, as they closely follow available information from scanners, CalTrans Freeway Vision, and other sources.  

PROGRAM TRAINING:
Each Traffic Watch Monitor has completed a comprehensive training program covering a range of scenarios and volunteers for a minimum 3-month commitment.  Operating from a base station, each monitor is responsible for purchasing and maintaining their own equipment.
