ENGLEWOOD, Fla., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Safety Warning System, L.C. is pleased to announce the launch of its new Internet Website, safetyradar.com. Developed by scientists at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, the Safety Warning System(R) (SWS) is a transmitter-receiver system that alerts motorists over one mile in advance of any one of a number of potential road hazards. SWS transmitters broadcast coded signals triggering one of 64 pre-programmed messages in SWS-enabled receivers situated in motorists' vehicles. The receiver produces an audible alert followed by an LED display of the text message, with some models also delivering a vocalized announcement of the message. First introduced in 1996, there are an estimated 10 million SWS- enabled radar detectors (receivers) on the road today. Visitors to the safetyradar.com website can view the current list of SWS Text Messages, read about SWS transmitter locations in their area and learn about the technology and the history behind the Safety Warning System(R). According to Janice Lee, president of SWS, L.C., "The new Safety Warning System(R) website is a wonderful opportunity for motorists, state and local government officials and lawmakers to learn more about the SWS, an exciting innovation in traffic safety that can potentially save lives on our nation's roadways." Ms. Lee went on to state, "We are so excited about the new SWS website because it is a one-stop resource where motorists can learn more about the many safety benefits of the Safety Warning System(R) and also find out how they can help to get SWS transmitters installed in their areas. The numerous state government and transportation links alone are worth a trip to safetyradar.com." Ms. Lee is referring to an impressive feature of the safetyradar.com website, its extensive directory of hyperlinks to other websites that deal with traffic congestion control, highway safety, general transportation and intelligent transportation systems. The SWS website directory includes hyperlinks to topic-related resources, such as general transportation, state government websites (including state transportation, public safety/police and information technology agencies). There are even hyperlinks to industry/trade associations and metropolitan planning organizations. Safety Warning System, L.C. licenses the technology to manufacturers of both the transmitters and receivers. SWS transmitters are produced by MPH Industries, Inc., of Owensboro, Kentucky. BG Tech America, Inc., of Fort Lee, New Jersey, and SK Global America, Inc., of New York, New York, are licensed manufacturers of the receivers in the United States in addition to SWS, L.C.'s member companies, Escort, Inc., of West Chester, Ohio; Uniden America Corporation, of Fort Worth, Texas; and The Whistler Group, of Bentonville, Arkansas, and Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
