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
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
