Technology is changing the way the world works. This includes the way large and small cities across the country and around the world are addressing their winter weather responses. By creating tools that allow cities to manage winter weather more effectively, technology is helping cities deliver faster responses and more effective management of snow, ice, and traffic. These are some of the tools and technology that are making real differences.

Smart Salt Spreaders

These nifty tools not only help spread salt more efficiently on city, state, and county roads, but also reduce salt consumption by 30 percent. This helps preserve roads, reduce rust, and save money while ensuring adequate coverage for roadways.

People, women drivers, especially, are often hesitant to pull over for vehicles that aren’t easily identifiable as law enforcement vehicles. GPS allows the location of vehicles to be easily tracked so a quick phone call to dispatch can confirm that it is, in fact, a police vehicle that is attempting to pull someone over.
