New Jersey Traffic Incident Management System (TIMS)

According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Traffic Incident Management (TIM) consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary process to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. TIM is a coordinated process that involves a number of public and private sector partners. Typical stakeholders include federal, state, and local agencies such as Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Fire/Rescue, Law Enforcement, Medical Examiners and Coroners. The private sector consists of volunteer, and contract organizations such as towing and recovery, hazardous materials responders. Effective TIM reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents and improves the safety of motorists, crash victims and emergency responders.
