California has taken some action to deal with its traffic situation. Caltrans, the state's transportation department, has signed a deal with Traffic.com to install digital roadside traffic sensors over 1,000 miles of freeway in San Jose and Sacramento, Federal Computer Week reports.

The company said it will provide the two new sensor systems and associated services at no cost to state and local government agencies. It pays for the sensors’ construction, operational costs and ongoing maintenance under a Federal Highway Administration initiative.

Officials said they plan to place the latest batch of sensors along major portions of I-280, I-680 and U.S. Highway 101 around the San Jose area and portions of CA-99, I-5, I-80 and U.S. Highway 50 near Sacramento. The company aims to complete the deployment by the end of 2007.
