3 Inefficient Traffic Incident Management Increases risk of crashes Wastes time & money Wastes fuel STATS Secondary crashes account for nearly 20% of all highway crashes That’s 60,000 secondary crashes in 2010

4 Did You Know? In 2010… – traffic crashes and struck-by incidents are leading causes of on- duty injuries and deaths for law enforcement, firefighters, and towing and recovery personnel – Congestion cost $100 billion annually – Cost of congestion to the trucking industry was $23 billion

5 Did You Know? Number of Lanes ShoulderBlocked Lanes Blocked OneTwoThree 281%35%0%N/A 383%49%17%0% 485%58%25%13% 587%65%40%20% 689%71%50%26%

6 Ohio QuickClear Saves lives Reduces congestion Enhances accountability GOALS Protect responders and motorists by limiting exposure Reduce risk of secondary crashes Prompt, reliable, interoperable communications

7 We Are Accountable! All Agencies… – Can be sued for negligence if the court finds the incident responders did not follow proper traffic maintenance procedures – OMUTCD

8 Best Practices Communication – First responders to notify appropriate personnel immediately including Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS,TMC staff, communications staff, FSP and towing and recovery companies – Establish traffic control plan using OMUTCD and timeline for opening lane closures – Provide timely updates to all personnel

9 Best Practices Coordination – Carry out on-scene tasks concurrently and with sense of urgency – Follow all principles of Incident Command – Implement “Steer It & Clear It” principles – Establish after action reviews for major incidents

10 Best Practices Cooperation – Ensure all personnel follow safety guidelines while on-scene – Reassess scene every 15 minutes and make unified decisions – Work as one team, not as separate entities – Establish post-incident briefing to improve practices

11 Responder Checklist Pre-arrival – Have dispatch verify incident severity in detail, and anticipate equipment needed – If conditions warrant, begin notification process for necessary agencies. Provide guidance to driver in accordance with local policy – Start notification process for towing and recovery teams for departure preparations – Plan for possible detour routes

12 Traffic Management Center Centralized location Monitors state highways for traffic incidents Communicates to all ODOT district personnel Updates

13 BuckeyeTraffic

14 Responder Checklist Arrival – Risk of incident vs. risks of traffic delays – What is the safest way to keep traffic flowing – Establish Incident Command System and Unified Command System – Establish communications link with agencies – Utilize ODOT to establish detour

15 Responder Checklist Post Incident – Media information on reasons for delay so public is informed – Debrief with agencies involved to better prepare for next incident

16 Performance Measures MINOR MAJOR Intermediate 30 min or < 60 min or < 2 hrs or < Incident Clearing Goals Reduce “Roadway” Clearance Time Time between awareness of accident and confirmation of all lanes being open to traffic Reduce “Incident” Clearance Time Time between awareness of accident and when last responder leaves the scene Reduce Number of Secondary Crashes The number of crashes produced by the initial crash, either near the crash scene or in the traffic queue

17 Incident Scenes

18 ODOT Playbook

19 ODOT Playbook Example

20 Disabled/Abandoned Vehicle On average, 450 shoulder collisions happen each year Limit time vehicles remain on the freeway shoulder FSP – Disabled vehicle re-location – Minor repairs to re-locate vehicle

21 Adopt “Steer It and Clear It”

22 Secondary Crash Example

23

24 Hay Fire

25 Hazmat Stop – I-71S Kings Island

26 I-71S Richland County Time of call Trooper Nelson on scene 1521-ODOT on scene Victim out of vehicle shut down 1543-Life Flight on ground 1559-Life Flight airborne 1603-Left lane open 1611-All lanes open

27 “Long term sustainability of the TIM process completely relies upon response agency commitment to the process and continued support and advancement of the state & regional Traffic Incident Management Groups.”
