If you have tourists, you want to corall them. A state needs to keep those silly tourists out of trouble and on the main roads. Florida has a lot of tourists...
Florida's Traveler Information Radio Network (TiRN) is a public-private co-operative effort between The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and TiRN Broadcasting. Inc. TiRN's stated mission is "To enhance the travel experience in the world's permier family vacation destination." In other words: "cut down on the frantic calls to 9-1-1"
TiRN's talk travel radio format is designed to provide both visitors and residents of Florida with timely traffic and weather interspersed with commercial and feature presentations of all the fun places to visit, stay, and enjoy both statewide and in the local area. TiRN is broadcasting throughout Central and Northern Florida, and soon the entire state.

WXXU 1300 AM: Broadcasts from Cocoa Beach, Florida, as their East Coast Affiliate.
