In May 2000, interviews were conducted with emergency response personnel in the region including police, fire, dispatchers, emergency medical services, and transportation agency personnel. The respondents indicated ARTIMIS was highly successful at reducing clearance times, and attributed to noticeable reductions in incident related traffic delay.
Modeling efforts were conducted to quantify the impacts of ARTIMIS. Since baseline data were limited, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) ITS Deployment Analysis System (IDAS) was used.
Estimates indicated fatalities were reduced by 3.2 percent for both the AM and PM peak periods.
