Towing and Recovery Service Partnerships
September 17, 2013, 2:30-4 p.m. eastern daylight time (EDT)
Presented by the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Highways for LIFE program, the Webinar will discuss Towing and Recovery Service Partnerships (TRSP). These initiatives allow public and private partners to work together to expedite the clearance of traffic incidents where large trucks are involved. Already at work in several States, the partnerships effectively reduce the length of time and the severity of incident-related traffic congestion. TRSPs can be customized to fit the needs, laws, and practices of each region or agency. More information about TRSPs is available at http://tig.transportation.org/Pages/TowingandRecoveryServicePartnership.aspx.
