Lesson Background HTML

In 2010, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published a handbook of best practices for overcoming common challenges in traffic incident management (TIM). Due to differing levels of investment, congestion, technology use, etc., the practice of TIM is highly variable across the United States. These best practices can help improve TIM nationally by sharing information on the tools and strategies found to be effective in the different functions of TIM. The FHWA developed the best practices with information from publications as well as input from practitioners in incident response, including experts from law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, transportation, and towing and recovery agencies, and from Arizona, California, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
