Drivers of salvage vehicles in the Netherlands can send electronic safety warnings to road users. When they are working on the road, they can use an app on their smart phone to send a message, which is then forwarded to the road users.
Road users thus will be warned for potential dangerous situations before they reach the spot of the incident. At this moment the system only works for road users that use Flistmeister, but the intention is that other apps and navigation systems will follow.
