The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is using Twitter to make learning about incidents and accidents on your travel route easier.
On Feb. 11, GDOT announced the creation of 16 new Twitter feeds for traffic alerts -- each feed for a specific interstate, highway or section thereof. According to a post on the Georgia Navigator 511 Facebook page, only serious incidents will be tweeted to prevent users from receiving alerts for every minor incident.
In addition to local I-85 north of Atlanta (https://twitter.com/GDOT_I85_N_GA) and I-985 (Part of the "Other local highways" feed - https://twitter.com/GDOT_othGAhwys), commuters may also follow 14 other feeds:
