SHA/State Farm Emergency Highway Patrols Expand to 24-hours in Metro Areas

"Our emergency patrols assist stranded motorists and get them out of harm’s way,” said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters. “The 24-7 expansion allows us to quickly respond to after-hours and weekend incidents as well as change flat tires and jump-start vehicles. The patrols are a wonderful customer service and more importantly, a critical safety program.”
