According to the Federal Highway Administration, traffic collisions cause three injuries every minute in the United States, putting nearly 39,000 incident responders potentially in harm's way every day. Congestion from these incidents often generates secondary crashes, further increasing traveler delay and frustration. Traffic Incident Management (TIM) saves lives through faster incident response and clearance, saves money through shorter traffic delays, and saves time by decreasing delays caused by accident-related congestion.
First responders can enroll in the National Highway Institute’s TIM training to learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively. Read more about National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training Program here.
