Vehicle accidents cause traffic congestion, which subsequently costs millions of dollars in lost revenue and wages for businesses and citizens alike. Each day, Chappelle’s Towing works to keep those losses to a minimum.
Chappelle’s has long enjoyed mutually beneficial relationships with government and law enforcement agencies to provide accident towing. We practice federally-recognized quick clearance procedures and view ourselves as an indispensable component of incident management programs, which support everyone’s efforts to save lives on our roadways. We are proud to partner in implementing this important initiative by reducing the traffic congestion that erodes our productivity and quality of life.
As the leading local towing resource, we are responsible for the safe and efficient removal of wrecked or disabled vehicles and debris from the accident scene. The challenges we face are unique and we stand ready to deliver solutions.
We work closely with law enforcement agencies throughout Washington state to increase the awareness and safety of both the traveling public and emergency responders. This is an important educational element for improved responder safety and system performance.
Once we arrive on scene, our top priority (after concern for the safety and security of the incident victims) is to open the roadway by clearing vehicles and debris from the traveled lanes, allowing traffic to resume at the maximum possible capacity under the circumstances. It’s important to remember that secondary incidents often occur as a direct or proximate result of a previous incident. If a crash occurs in traffic lanes or even on the shoulder, a potentially serious safety hazard exists.
All of this work has to be delicately balanced with the need to conduct an accurate investigation. The faster we can clear the scene, the faster the officers investigating the accident can go to their next call. This translates into real cost savings.
If you find yourself in a car accident and see a Chappelle’s Towing, LLC truck on the site, know that you are in great hands!
