Recently, the South Carolina Department of Transportation launched a new program called the State Highway Emergency Program, also referred to as SHEP. The program is designed to clear vehicle accidents right after they occur so there are fewer traffic jams at all times. In addition, SHEP will be able to make small repairs on disabled cars and trucks, help with traffic control, and manage various types of incidents that may slow traffic or cause people to rubberneck.
In most cases, SHEP will be able to help with the following:
- Refuel cars that have run out of gas
- Pump or change the tires on cars with flat tires
- Remedy small mechanical problems
As of now, SHEP can service drivers in the following areas:
- Grand Strand
- Myrtle Beach
- Rock Hill
- Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson
How Will This New Program Work?
When an incident occurs, SHEP will, in most cases, be the first to respond so that they can mitigate each accident or situation as quickly as possible. Many believe that by allowing traffic flow to continue at normal paces, more auto collisions can be avoided. Furthermore, SHEP will be responsible for identifying hazardous materials that can cause other incidents.
