How Traffic Incidents are Collected

This is a great real-time traffic API, but I'm wondering how the reported incidents are collected? Will mapquest broadcast police or traffic agencies' reports? Or incidents are captured by other means such as human subjects? Also, is there any possbility of data loss? Say, Mapquest may not return some incidents for a region as a lack of initial source of reporting? 

Thanks
