Traffic and Television
Traffic is a subject normally dealt with as a news story, with specific services on the occasion of accidents or events that affect the whole road network, such as exoditions on holidays, holidays or long weekends.
The public television broadcasters include in their programming the traffic news with daily appointments on schedule. Although of relative utility for those at home, they serve to testify the existence of a national ICT – Traffic Information Center, guarantor of a continuous monitoring of traffic.
Commercial broadcasters sometimes plan traffic news, provided that cost coverage is ensured by a sponsor promoting products and services for motorists.
