Synthesis of Highway Practice 318
Safe and Quick Clearance of Traffic Incidents

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 318: Safe and Quick Clearance of Traffic Incidents profiles laws, policies, and procedures for facilitating clearance of traffic incidents, primarily those initially blocking travel lanes and attended to by the vehicle operator, on highways in urban and rural areas. The report discusses quick clearance legislation, hold harmless laws, policies governing the removal of accident victims, the duties of private tow companies, and more.   This topic is published at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=1868
