ORGANIZATIONAL OBJECTIVE 4:
Reduce secondary crashes throughout the region.
The objectives of this example are to illustrate:
Due to what seems to be a growing number of crashes occurring secondary to other incidents, the Northville TIM partners have set an organization objective to reduce secondary crashes throughout the region. In order to do so, they have begun recording information on whether an incident occurs within the time of detection of another incident and within either the original incident scene or queue in either direction of travel. This information, which is entered by either TMC operators or identified by responders at the incident scene, is a data element in the TIM performance measurement database and can be used for analysis purposes.
