Servant Leadership: “The servant-leader is servant first…It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.

Servant leadership in Traffic Incident Management needs national, state and local leaders asking those working on the highway — what do you need to make your job safer with quicker clearance?

The list includes Slow Down/Move Over laws, signs and public awareness * Emergency Scene Ahead signs * Emergency preemption of traffic signals * 2/10 Mile Marker Sign * Traffic Incident Management training * Towing and Recovery agreements * Hazmat plan on cleaning highway so the traffic can flow * Have a Quick Clearance Fund for those times when the insurance company is slow to say they will pay for removal of traffic accidents.
