Traffic Incident Management
In a minor fender-bender? Here are some tips on clearing it out of the road quickly:
- Move your vehicle to the side of the road and inspect it there - not in dangerous travel lanes.
- Often, a primary crash leads to a traffic backup and increases the risk of secondary crash, which can be more sever than the original collision.
- Vehicles involved in a non-injury crash that remain operable, according to Arizona law, must be removed from the roadway.
- Emergency responders - police, fire, tow truck operators, etc. - need a safe place to work, too. On average, a tow truck operator is struck and killed every six days in the US.
