    • 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.
