TIM GUIDELINES – NEW VERSION NOW AVAILABLE!

The Georgia Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Guidelines were developed under the direction of Georgia’s Traffic Incident Management Enhancement (TIME) Task Force. The TIME Task Force is an organization led by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to facilitate coordination, communication and cooperation between multi-agency, multi-discipline incident responders in an effort to clear traffic incidents quickly while promoting the safety of responders and the motoring public.

We recognize that working in and around traffic is a dangerous task. Tragically, more and more incident responders are struck by vehicles on our nation’s highways each year causing countless injuries and, in many cases, fatalities. Having a uniform and proven approach to guide incident management activities helps provide the safest possible work environment for all Georgia incident responders. In late 2023, the Georgia Department of Transportation established a task force of transportation and public safety representatives to review and revise the original TIM Guidelines.
