Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) operates Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) services on Orange County freeways. The purpose of the FSP project is to provide for the rapid clearing of traffic lanes blocked by disabled vehicles, minor accidents, and congestion causing debris. Project services shall also assist disabled vehicles on the shoulders and in the center divider. When necessary, assistance shall be provided to California Highway Patrol (CHP) as directed by the scene officer at any incident if within the limits of the FSP project. The service patrol operators (FSP operator(s)), who work for the Contractor(s), shall assist motorists involved in minor accidents and those with disabled vehicles. They shall be responsible for clearing the freeway of automobiles, small trucks (vehicles with a gross weight of 6,000 pounds or less), and small debris. When and where conditions warrant, service may be executed on the freeway shoulders. Where conditions do not warrant, FSP operators shall remove the vehicles from the freeway to provide service. FSP operators shall be required to provide on-the-spot assistance to motorists, free of charge, and with no tip. An Operator may: jump start vehicles, change a flat tire, provide a gallon of gas, refill radiators, tape water hoses, or provide other quick fixes to mobilize the disabled vehicle. FSP operators should not spend more than 10 minutes per disablement in attempting to mobilize a vehicle. If a vehicle cannot be mobilized within the 10-minute time limit, the FSP operator shall tow the vehicle from the freeway to a designated drop location identified by the CHP. If the motorist desires alternate assistance, the motorist can request the FSP operator to take him/her to a call box or public pay phone if one is not available at the drop zone.
