TravelCenters of America, NATSO partner for mobile tech safety

A safety alert from HAAS Alert.

TravelCenters of America and the NATSO Foundation equipped TA Truck Service roadside assistance vehicles with HAAS Alert Safety Cloud digital alerting program. 

"HAAS Alert's real-time digital notifications provide a safer work environment for the thousands of team members who provide emergency roadside services to professional drivers in need of help," says Debi Boffa, TA CEO. "Safety is our top priority, and we are extremely proud to drastically improve roadside working conditions and better protect both our team members and professional drivers."

The platform shows slow down and move over alerts to oncoming drivers when a roadside assistance vehicle activates its flashing lights and is stopped alongside a roadway. The alerts are sent to drivers using navigation apps such as Waze and Apple Maps and through the infotainment screens of 2018 and newer Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram vehicles. 

"Our collaboration with TravelCenters of America is a vital step forward in our shared commitment to road safety," says Cory Hohs, CEO of HAAS Alert. "By offering Safety Cloud digital alerts, we can help more roadside service workers get home to their families every night."

The NATSO Foundation and HAAS Alert partnered in 2023 to enhance safety for the industry's roadside service technicians. The NATSO Foundation hopes to spread HAAS Alert with the nation's network of truck stop and travel center locations. 

"We are pleased that TA is implementing the software into its ERA vehciles," says Lisa Mullings, NATSO Foundation president. "By reminding drivers to comply with Move Over laws, we can significantly decrease risk, making highways safer for all."
