An Opportunity to Promote Roadway Safety
Nearly every week, a traffic incident responder is killed while clearing a roadway incident, while many more sustain life-changing injuries. These secondary crashes place a high toll on response communities, and they endanger road users.
Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW) is a national effort to spotlight safe strategies that responder communities and travelers can apply around traffic incidents. This year, CRSW takes place November 8–14, 2021. To learn how your agency can use CRSW to promote road safety, please visit the FHWA CRSW Campaign Toolkit and the National Operations Center of Excellence CRSW website, or contact Jim Austrich, the FHWA Next-Generation TIM co-lead.
