We occasionally hear of drivers on Interstate 90 going the wrong way, which often causes traffic collisions. Apparently this same problem is so bad in Rhode Island that the Department of Transportation is installing systems to detect wrong way drivers and alert them that they’re headed the wrong direction.

Sensors will detect if someone enters a ramp going the wrong direction, which activates a series of signs that flash along the highway and displays a message to warn other drivers.
