Commercial Motor Vehicles in TIMA

1 post in this topic


In Missouri we have been seeing an increase in CMV not responding to Incident Management signs on our Interstates.  Trucks are not slowing down and/or moving over creating some very serious scene safety concerns.


Feedback from responders, staff and law enforcement points to the increase in non-English speaking drivers not being able to read, interpret and understand the signing.


Another factor we believe may be leading to the problem is sign placement and height.  We currently use roll-up signing on portable sign stands. 


Our question is:  What are other states doing to get the attention and appropriate response from the Commercial Motor Vehicle traffic, especially considering the influx of non-English speaking drivers?


Any best practices, products, or traffic control plans would greatly be appreciated.
