This paper proves that mobile phone usage data is an easy to use, cheap and most importantly, reliable predictor of motorway incidents. Using econometric modelling, this paper provides a proof of concept of how mobile phone usage data can be utilised to detect motorway incidents. Greater Amsterdam is used here as a case study and the results suggest that mobile phone usage data can be utilised for the development of an early warning system to support road traffic incident management.
