Motorist Assistance Patrol
The Motorist Assistance Patrol (MAP) purpose is to help motorist in distress. The current response time is less than 4 minutes. MAP operators change tires, provide water for cooling systems, aid with requesting a tow truck for a disabled vehicle, administer emergency first aid, and provide support with water rescues. The MAP trucks are equipped with lights, radios, fire extinguishers, life rings, rope ladders, first aid kits and specialized tools. All MAP operators are certified each year in CPR, AED, first aid and water rescue training. Causeway MAP operators also aid in removing debris from the roadway and help lead convoys during inclement weather and accidents.
Motor Assistance Patrol is a free service that aids motorists who are stranded on the Bridge.
By assisting disabled vehicles, the MAP keeps traffic delays to a minimum and reduces congestion on the Bridge. MAP operators move broken down vehicles from the traffic lanes. If necessary, MAP has two wreckers stationed on the Bridge that can move vehicles to the nearest Crossover or Safety Bays during peak traffic hours.
