Today, Gore lends his star power to encourage motorists to connect, know and go when driving on Florida’s roads by using the Florida 511 Advanced Traveler Information System (FL511).

FL511 helps travelers get to their destination with comfort and ease. It provides real-time traffic information, and the right maneuvers to the best routes to minimize delays. Plus, FL511 helps motorists avoid major traffic jams.

A proud Florida native, Gore welcomes the opportunity to support this statewide service. “This is home, and I am pleased to share this message about FL511,” says Gore. “It’s your best move on the road!”

Gore played college football for the University of Miami, and has for the last 14 years, been a star running back in the National Football League (NFL). He knows the value of making the best moves on the field, and is fourth all time in career rushing yards in the NFL. His best moves on the road include the use of FL511.

FL511 is a service provided by the Florida Department of Transportation, and is the state’s official source for real-time traffic and travel information. The FL511 app, website, and Twitter feeds provide information on Florida’s interstates, toll roads and other major metropolitan roadways, allowing drivers to avoid unnecessary delays, as well as receive updates on crashes, congestion, construction and more. The FL511 mobile app, available from the Apple App Store or Google Play, features an interactive map showing traffic congestion and incidents on roads around the user’s location.
