Michigan Traffic Incident Management Effort

Michigan's Traffic Incident Management Effort (Mi-TIME) is a partnership between agencies, including MDOT, state and local law enforcement, fire, EMS, local road agencies and towing services, to work together to safely and efficiently clear traffic incidents from Michigan's roads.

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) is important for maintaining safe, effective travel, as well as minimizing economic impacts due to delays and congestion. Mi-TIME responder training provides the responder community with TIM standards and good practices, with the overall purpose of enhancing quick clearance efforts and improving responder and motorist safety.
