What is a queue? Defined as a line of slow moving or stopped traffic.
In June of 2013, the Protect the Queue campaign was born. This
movement stresses to all TDOT employees and partnering agencies
the importance of protecting drivers caught in a traffic queue. A training
program on the most effective queue management techniques was
launched. Since the start of TDOT's Protect the Queue campaign,
data gathered from July 2013 through December 2013 shows a 19%
reduction in secondary incidents over the same period in 2012. This
equates to 20 fewer secondary incidents, and could represent four lives
saved.
