Hi this is Mark Thush, I’m an accident attorney practicing personal injury law here in Florida. In today’s video we discuss what are the Road Rangers traveling on Florida’s Interstates.
Road Rangers is a FREE SERVICE provided by the Florida Department of Transportation. Their mission is to provide free highway assistance services during incidents to reduce delay and improve safety for both the public and first responders. Since the program began in 2000, the Road Rangers have made almost 4 million service assists, or about 400 thousand assists per year and that number increases daily.
The Road Rangers program was initially used for the management of vehicle incidents in construction zones. As a result of it’s tremendous success the program has expanded to respond to all types of incidents and has become one of the most effective elements of the Department of Transportation incident management program. The Road Rangers provide a direct service to motorists by quickly clearing travel lanes of minor incidents and assisting motorists. Services can include: providing a limited amount of fuel, assisting with a tire change and other types of minor emergency repairs. Road Ranger’s are typically assigned to work along major interstate corridors and within construction areas on the interstates.
Road Rangers developed out of necessity and as a result of great public importance protecting the general public from harm in construction zones. This program continues to evolve to assist vehicles on urban freeways allowing traffic to continue moving safely. To contact the Road Rangers simply dial *FHP or (*347) for Road Ranger Dispatch.
