The California Highway Patrol and Caltrans are getting reports of collision debris being left on our freeways and roads. Unfortunately, the debris that is left behind can cause secondary collisions that can result in property damage, injuries, or death. The CHP has asked CTTA, as its partner in road safety, to help prevent this unnecessary danger by encouraging all CTTA members to:
- Remove all debris from the scene of an accident, and/or
- Call 1-800-TELL-CHP (1-800-835-5247) with the debris location so that it can be promptly removed by the CHP and Caltrans.
CTTA thanks the tow community for your commitment to helping our state partners improve motorist safety in California.
