Traffic Assistance

If you are filming a scene on a city, county or state road, or if you need to place cameras, equipment or crew on a road, it is always preferable to avoid rush hours (7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., weekdays) and allow for at least one lane of traffic (in both directions) to be open at all times. Intermittent traffic control can be arranged.

All types of traffic restrictions require enough officer assistance to control and redirect traffic adequately. This will be determined by the appropriate law enforcement agency and traffic engineering. As a general rule, traffic engineering departments favor the closure of major roads during off-peak hours (7 p.m. to 7 a.m., Sunday to Thursday). Roads that incur light traffic are easier to close during daytime hours and for longer periods of time.

Road closures require a minimum five-day notice.
