Traffic Incident Management
Effective management of traffic incidents is crucial to the safe and efficient use of roadways. Coordinated multiagency response to detect, respond to, and remove traffic incidents supports the shared goals of returning the flow of traffic to normal as quickly as possible while ensuring safety for both first responders and the public. Doing so limits the amount of time that first responders must spend on scene and reduces the likelihood of secondary crashes.
These documents provide policy considerations for safe and efficient traffic incident management as well as expanded explanation of the concepts and issues relevant to traffic incident management.
