Every minute you’re stopped on the freeway, you risk being seriously injured or killed.
Houston TranStar’s It’s Only a White Line reminds drivers that they risk being seriously injured or killed any time they step outside a stopped vehicle on the freeway.
Watch this important It’s Only a White Line message.
Strong community partnerships play an important role in TranStar’s effort to prevent deaths of stranded motorists and pedestrians on freeways within its service area. The It’s Only a White Line Leadership Council represents a cross section of experts from law enforcement, the medical community, transportation management, the towing industry, and auto insurance associations. Each member’s unique perspective contributes valuable knowledge and practical solutions for measuring the impact of these preventable tragedies.
Paramedics, emergency department staff, and hospital specialists each represent valuable opportunities for capturing data. For prevention methods to work, it’s important to understand the outcomes of motorists standing outside their vehicles on the freeway.
Tow operators providing quick clearance of vehicles off freeways play a critical role in saving lives. Other members of the road safety community, including insurance councils and independent auto insurance agents, offer reliable information for correcting common misconceptions.
