1. A road condition warning computer system, comprising:

  • one or more non-transitory data storage devices storing processed telematics data, wherein the processed telematics data is based on location data and kinematic data received from a sensor within a first vehicle;

    one or more computer processors in communication with the one or more data storage devices;

    a memory, coupled to the one or more computer processors, storing program instructions which, when executed by the one or more computer processors, cause the one or more computer processors to;

    identify, based on the stored processed telematics data, deceleration related safety events associated with the first vehicle and a location corresponding to each of the identified deceleration related safety events; and

    receive, based on telematics data received from sensors in other vehicles, deceleration related safety events data of the other vehicles and a location corresponding to each of the identified deceleration related safety events, andidentify whether deceleration related safety events of the first vehicle and of the other vehicles have occurred at a same location;

    responsive to a determination that a threshold number, greater than one, of deceleration related safety events have occurred at the same location, automatically generate and transmit a notification to a community resource computer system containing data indicative of the location and the deceleration related safety events.
