Traffic Control

START Group personnel are experts in temporary traffic control (TTC) and traffic incident management (TIM). Most are currently employed as Firefighters/Rescuers in various Illinois cities and practice TIM techniques on a daily basis. These experiences allow them to not only understand the MUTCD, but provides them with practical application of the Federal and State standards.

The Director of START Group, Michael Kelly, has been very involved in the development of TTC and TIM standards at both the Federal and State levels. Michael has spoken at the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (2003 and 2004) regarding Chapter 6I and emergency responders. In 2006, he was selected to serve and provide input in the revisions to the MUTCD (serving on the NCUTCD).

START Group has formed a partnership with PSS to assist PSS in providing training to customers in traffic incident management, ADA compliance, and temporary traffic control. In addition, START Group is involved in the creation of quick reference guides for both temporary traffic control and traffic incident management. Lastly, START Group consults with PSS on new product development.
