  1. 1. Traffic Incident Management Wyoming DOT Supervisors Meeting Cheyenne, WY Ray Murphy, US DOT – FHWA March 26, 20131
  2. 2. Presentation Topics I. National TIM Program… FHWA’s vision II. Business Case for TIM… why it’s important III. National Unified Goal… working together IV. TIM Process… it’s a team effort V. SHRP2 TIM Training 2
  3. 3. Traffic Incident Management (TIM)  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 and improves the safety of motorists, crash victims and emergency responders 3
  4. 4. National TIM Program Vision… Reduce or eliminate responder & motorist injuries & fatalities Promote rapid incident clearance TIM Programs that benefit corridors, regions and states Emphasize TIM as a system operations “core mission” Measure performance / improved TIM responses and programs Standardize Training 4
  5. 5. II. Business Case for TIM Quantifying the Problem - Motorist Safety Every hour, car crashes kill an average of four people on Americas roads. “Traffic crashes really need to be moved to the forefront of the American discussion as the public safety (and) health threat that they are," observes AAA . 5 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
  6. 6. Quantifying the Problem - Responder Safety Average annual number of responders struck and killed nationally while working in or near moving traffic:  Highway: 100 /year + 20,000 injured  Fire/Rescue & EMS: 6 to 8 /year As of March 2013 Killed in the Line of Duty  Law Enforcement: 10 to 12 /year Law Enforcement 14  Tow/Recovery: 50 /year Fire Fighters 6 EMS 7Source: Emergency Responder Safety Institute Tow/Recovery 5 6 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
  7. 7. Quantifying the Problem -Secondary Incidents Estimated 20-25% of all incidents are secondary They generate ~18 percent of accident fatalities The likelihood of a secondary incident increases ~3% for every minute  An incident lasting 35 minutes or more has almost a 100% likelihood of a secondary incident occurring7 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
  8. 8. Quantifying the Problem - Societal Costs “The emotional toll for Americans who lose a friend or loved one in a motor vehicle crash has a steep financial counterpart - an average $6 million per fatal accident” Annual cost of traffic crashes: $299.5 B  Cost per person ≈ $1,522 8 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?

  10. 10. Quantifying the Problem - Freight Issues High volume long haul trucking Lack of alternate route options Motor Carrier Regulations – 11 hours behind wheel Parking and rest areas 10 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
  11. 11. Average Daily Long-Haul Freight Truck Traffic on theNational Highway System: 2009 2009 ~14,000 per day ~25,000 per dayOur highway systemhandled the movement of44 million tons of freight (onaverage), worth $40 billion,each day in 2009. 11 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
  12. 12. Projected Average Daily Long-Haul Freight TruckTraffic on the National Highway System: 2040 2040 ~20,000 per day ~40,000 per day projections indicate that these numbers will climb to approximately 74 million tons and $108 billion per day by the year 204012 Evolving Business Case: Why TIM?
