Overview of Freeway Service Patrols in the United States

This report provides an overview of freeway service patrols (FSPs) in the U.S., including information about organizations and resources, operating practices, vehicles and equipment, and the types and levels of services offered. The information was gathered over a four month period in mid-2008 relying primarily on web searches, telephone interviews, and a survey of FSP operators. The most important objective of the project was to develop a complete and accurate directory of FSPs—to facilitate exchange of information among FSP operators and to enable additional FSP research.
