Traffic Incident Management

Americans burn more than 2.8 billion gallons of fuel every year stuck in incident-related traffic.

Commuters lose nearly a full workweek (36 hours) sitting in traffic congestion each year. Every minute a traffic lane is blocked creates 4 extra minutes of delay.

Traffic incidents create unsafe situations, put lives at risk, and cause delays.

You can help:

  1. Move your car to a safe place – out of the travel lanes – if you are involved in an incident, and there are no injuries.
  2. When you see flashing lights ahead of you, you need to slow down and/or move over. You can be ticketed for failing to do this!
  3. Help keep your loved ones safe and avoid a ticket. Tell your friends and family about these laws.
