Towing and Recovery Service Partnerships (TRSPs) help public and private partners establish protocols, and often training and incentives, to ensure that the right responders, tow equipment and operators are brought in to rapidly restore traffic flow, based purely on the type of incident and the vehicles involved.
Already at work in several states, each partnership means the stalled motorist is safer, responders are safer, and the likelihood of secondary accidents is reduced, increasing safety and mobility for all.
TRSPs are customizable to the needs, laws, and practices of each region or agency.
TRSPs are public/private partnerships with the tow industry which use local tow vendors who have the equipment, personnel and expertise to respond and remove vehicles in their assigned zones, safely and quickly, depending upon the nature of the incident.
