  • Abstract:
    Excessive delay, cost, and adverse public safety result from major incidents that occur along critical segments of the interstate system. There is a high likelihood these types of incidents involve a commercial vehicle. Several recent crashes that have occurred in the Baton Rouge area have brought attention to the signifi cant cost to the public, not only in terms of delay and safety, but in economic impact and personal frustration. Given a crash that blocks critical travel lanes or an entire direction for multiple hours, the cost could be enormous. Additionally, the vehicles involved in these crashes were often not transporting hazardous materials or no signifi cant injuries were incurred, raising the question of whether the degree of delay incurred was justifi ed.
