In the article there were presented the results of information quality analysis for data recorded by the road weather stations in the aspect of the necessity to ensure road safety. The analysis was performed for the time horizon of several weeks including the period of time, during which there were both favorable and adverse weather conditions. The set of data about current road condition and the information about the particular meteorological parameters were collected for single road location with the redundancy of sensors in cross-section of the road.
