TTIRS Wants You!
In order to obtain accurate information about who, what, when, where and why of roadside safety for the towing industry, TTIRS needs you to report every roadside Near Miss or Struck By incident.
- Did you know tow operators are one of the ONLY first responders at a roadside scene that must park their vehicle in front of the work zone in order to provide service?
- How many times do tow operators provide roadside service without a vehicle parked behind the work zone as a safety buffer?
- Have many times has a tow operator been on the side of the road and had to jump out of the way of an oncoming vehicle? That’s called a Near Miss.
- Have you witnessed a tow operator, tow truck or the vehicle in need os service being struck while on the side of the road? That is called a Struck By.
Please report PAST and PRESENT Near Misses and Struck Bys. Your participation is crucial. It will provide our industry with the hard data needed to support Move Over enforcement and to help develop training to make our roadside work safer for the towing industry.
TTIRS is a national, online, voluntary, reporting system for the towing industry. The TTIRS system allows the reporting of Struck By and Near Miss events involving tow operator safety.
Use Of TTIRS is FREE for Tow Companies, Operators and Government Agencies to report incidents. The goal of TTIRS is to collect and quantify data and make it available to member associations to support Move Over enforcement and to help develop training to make our roadside work safer for the towing industry.
