About 150 drivers in the Triangle have already signed up but the program is still open to 300 more.

Cameras will be installed inside the  car to record as well as in front of the car to monitor the driver’s movements and measure its distance from other cars. The research will aid in finding underlying causes of crashes and congestion.

Drivers will be paid $500 per year, and the study could last for up to two years, and every 6 month one driver will be rewarded and extra $1,000.

In order to participate you must live within about 50 miles of Morrisville, agree to complete the questionaires and own a qualifing vehicle:
