  • 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.
