Innovative Temporary Traffic Control Devices & Methods

Innovative Temporary Traffic Control Devices & Methods

New Module on Innovative Traffic Control Can Help Save Lives
It’s tough to respond to an incident, even under the most favorable conditions. Slowing and controlling traffic flow can keep responders and the public safer while response work is done. This module looks at innovative ways that you can more effectively control traffic using new technologies and properly implement all available standard traffic control devices.   

As roadway incident responders, it is important that we all stay current on available traffic control devices and tactics, that can help us reduce the possibility of secondary incidents. 

Learn more by watching this New Module from ResponderSafety.

Module Abstract:
Emergency response agencies have recognized that keeping motorists away from emergency scenes on the roadway has many benefits. It reduces congestion, improves safety by exposing responders to less traffic, reduces the opportunities for secondary incidents, and conserves resources by keeping vehicles from idling in traffic. If motorists are already close to the incident, temporary traffic control (TTC) devices can force them to slow down to reduce the danger to responders. Innovative temporary traffic control devices and automatic driver alert systems are gaining acceptance and popularity as effective ways to detour, reduce or slow traffic flow around emergency incidents on the roadway. This program raises awareness about these new devices, technologies, and methods so departments can evaluate whether these options can be adopted in their communities.
