NJLTAP – Introduction to NJ’s Traffic Incident Management Training

  • May 8
  • 10:00 am–11:30 am

Course Description:
This is our first mini-webinar of 2024. This session will provide an overview of Traffic Incident Management (TIM) and the coordinated program institutionalized in New Jersey.

Traffic incidents are unplanned roadway events that affect or impede the normal flow of traffic. Traffic incidents increase the likelihood of secondary crashes and pose a threat to the safety of incident responders as well as the traveling public. Incidents affect travel reliability, commerce, and transportation system performance. One of the essential responsibilities of transportation and public safety agencies is to ensure the safe and quick clearance of traffic incidents.

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary process to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. Effective TIM reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents; improves the safety of motorists, crash victims, and emergency responders; and reduces the frequency of secondary crashes.

The goal for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) TIM Program is to continuously improve the safety of responders and road users, the reliability of travel, and the efficiency of incident and emergency response through institutionalization of TIM programs.

  1. Learn there is a standardized Traffic Incident Management training in New Jersey
