Safe, quick clearance (SQC) laws and policies are a central component to reaping the safety, mobility, and economic benefits of traffic incident management (TIM). Without effective implementation of three core SQC laws, the benefits of even the most advanced and effective TIM practices will be limited. Effective implementation of these three types of SQC laws and policies saves lives by: providing a “cushion” for responders when drivers move over; keeping roadways open for faster incident response; and helping to prevent secondary accidents by having motorists move their vehicles out of the path of travel and allowing responders to remove debris or abandoned vehicles from shoulders or travel lanes.

This fact sheet provides an overview of the SQC laws in the U.S., describes the benefits of implementing SQC laws, and introduces the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) SQC Outreach Initiative. This document also presents the objectives of this outreach program and previews expected outreach materials from this initiative.
