Target Audience

Local, state, federal, DOT government officials; ITS and TIM Program Managers, police, fire, consultants, vendors, academia, and any other individuals involved in the design, deployment, operation, evaluation of TIM Programs, and the collection of TIM Performance Measures.

Background

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary approach to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. Effective TIM strategies reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents and improves the safety of motorists, crash victims, and emergency responders. Currently, there are new and updated reports, events, and training sessions that contribute to the success of the practice.

The webinar covers Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) TIM updates, which include: information about the “Traffic Incident Awareness Week,” SHRP2 National TIM Responder training and its evaluation, Every Day Counts-4 “Using Data to Improve TIM,” and other resources.

The webinar examines the technology used for the investigation and reconstruction of traffic crashes and provides information about each technology’s capabilities and limitations to inform crash investigation units of available options.

The final presentations include two TIM experts sharing information about Tennessee Department of Transportation’s (TDOT) Advanced TIM training and the agency’s Predictive Analytics project. TDOT’s training is a program developed in response to the SHRP2 L12 and L32 modules
