Snow, rain, fog, ice, and other inclement weather greatly impair road conditions and contribute to 1.5 million accidents each year. Many parallel advances in transportation and meteorology such as in-vehicle communication systems and improved storm tracking could be brought together into new services that help drivers and roadway managers make better decisions in adverse weather. Where the Weather Meets the Road recommends that the Federal Highway Administration take the lead in creating a focused national road weather research program that brings together the transportation and meteorological communities, identifies research priorities, and implements new scientific and technological advances.
