Freeway Service Patrol
In addition, FSP drivers are frequently first on the scene to assist with accidents. If FSP drivers can’t get the vehicle running within a few minutes, they’ll tow it to a safe drop-off location.
Established in 1993, the FSP program provides cost-effective and immediate congestion relief for the most traveled freeway corridors by quickly removing stalled vehicles and getting stranded motorist on their way. Using a fleet of 25 tow trucks and seven light-duty pickup trucks, FSP drivers have assisted more than 50,000 motorists during the past year — patrolling approximately 225 miles of San Diego freeways, including sections of Interstates 5, 8, 15 and 805, and State Routes 52, 54, 56, 78, 94, 125, 163, and 905. The FSP operates weekdays from 5:30 to 9:30 a.m. and from 3 to 7 p.m., excluding holidays.
