Highway accidents, disabled vehicles and other incidents are a prime cause of congestion in Massachusetts. Highway capacities are reduced, backups form, and about $1 billion per year is lost in terms of lost time and wasted fuel. An incident management system to deal with congestion caused by highway incidents needs to pull together resources and talents from several public agencies and private organizations, each of which can effectively solve part of the problem. In recognition of this need, the Executive Office of Transportation and Construction and the Executive Office of Public Safety, the American Trucking Associations, and the National Incident Management Coalition sponsored the first Incident Management Conference for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on June 6, 1991. This publication contains the proceedings of that conference.
