You Can Help!

VDOT Safety Service Patrol

The Safety Service Patrol is an integral part of the overall traffic incident management strategy. The primary focus of the program is incident management and emergency response. 

By reducing duration of incidents, it minimizes traffic congestion at, or near, incident scenes. Such scenes include traffic crashes, debris and disabled vehicles. 

One of the duties of the Safety Service patroller is to provide short-term traffic control and scene management. This promotes the safe movement of people and commerce, and reduces congestion and delays.
