    A STATE FREEWAY SERVICE PATROL: A FLORIDA CASE STUDY Harkanwal Nain Singh ABSTRACT The Road Ranger program is a freeway service patrol (FSP) designed to assist disabled vehicles along congested freeway segments and relieve peak period non-recurring congestion through quick detection, verification and removal of freeway incidents in Florida. Reducing the duration of freeway traffic incident plays a significant role in improving the efficiency of freeway transportation. The duration of freeway traffic incidents is composed of four stages: the discovery time, response time, clearing time and the recovery time. Through analyzing the key factors influencing different duration stations, this article studies how factors including Author: Jing Ru Gao.

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs have been introduced worldwide with the aim of mitigating the impact of traffic incidents on safety and roadway performance. These programs support quick incident response, thereby shortening incident duration, and control traffic demand around the incident scene.

The above observation confirms that an incident took place somewhere between detector stations C 3 and C r, the traffic conditions in C 4 is relatively close to free flow condition during the selected timeframe, which means that cars had enough time/space to accelerate.

Therefore, the incident location is more likely close to C The flow, density and mean speed measurements of C 1 Cited by: 5. Enhancement of Freeway Incident Traffic Management and Resulting Benefits 5.
