Our Mission

 

Oklahomans continue to contribute to the national totals of injuries and deaths of roadway workers and responders. The issues of how traffic incidents are managed are known to play apart of these contributions. The process of traffic management by responders and workers also contribute to known insults to economic and productivity issues as well as, increased potential for secondary crashes.

 

The Mission of the Oklahoma TIM Coalition Team has multiple recognized strategies that starts with promotion of the TIM message in Oklahoma to meet the following:

Reduce the number of struck-by and deaths of roadway workers and responders.

Reduce the number of secondary crashes that raises risks  and costs tied to traffic management.

Reduce the lateral economic, financial, and productivity insults caused by traffic queues.

Lower the risks and cost associated with insuring vehicles and personnel (specifically those on state plans)

Reduction of on-scene times of responders of roadway incidents

Continue public education with regard to Okla. traffic laws pertaining to this issue.

What We Do

 
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. Effective TIM reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents and improves the safety of motorists, crash victims and emergency responders.
The TIM Program of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is part of a larger all-hazards program called Emergency Transportation Operations (ETO).

Both the ETO and TIM Programs are housed in the FHWA's Office of Transportation Operations under the Associate Administrator for Operations.
