Depending on the time of day and location, incidents create 55-60% of the congestion on highways in Nevada.
Identifying the severity and location of a crash can significantly shorten the response and clearance times, it may even save lives.
An accident that occurs as a result of congestion or distraction from a prior crash is referred to as a “secondary accident”.
Exact figures on the number of secondary accidents are difficult to calculate. Preliminary results of a study by UNLV indicate that as many as 22% of all incidents in the Las Vegas region are the result of an earlier crash.
Secondary crashes can potentially be more serious than the original crash as motorists become impatient and distracted with their driving. National studies show that as many as 18% of secondary crashes result in a fatality.

The Nevada Traffic Incident Management TIM Coalition(s)

Welcome to The Nevada Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Coalitions exist to coordinate and sustain an effective multi-agency, multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional TIM program that improves safety by training together to implement safe, quick clearance of crashes. Early removal of vehicles, debris and injured parties has demonstrated a significant decline in secondary crashes and saves lives of first responders, incident victims and other motorists.

The TIM Coalition provides bimonthly meetings, a forum for discussions, incident debriefings for educational purposes, and an opportunity to develop multiagency policies and procedures that demonstrate enhanced coordinated response times for removal of incidents to prevent secondary crashes and minimize traffic congestion.
