NCDOT (North Carolina Department of Transportation)
Travel information is currently disseminated to the public using venues such as Highway Advisory Radio, Dynamic Message Signs, and on other NCDOT services. The North Carolina 511 system is part of a nationwide effort to disseminate travel information to the public via another venue, the telephone. 511 in North Carolina was implemented in the summer of 2004.
511 uses an automated voice response system, which means callers are guided through a menu with a series of requests. Callers can ask for specific areas, and the system will provide information about traffic incidents, closures and other important roadway conditions.
Local law enforcement agencies seek credible information concerning suspects involved in crimes. Remember, you do not have to leave your name and a cash reward may be offered if your information leads to an arrest.
