6-1-10-2: PURPOSE:
The purpose for using the traffic signal preemption system (TSPS) in Lakeville is to allow emergency vehicles to perform emergency services in a safer and more timely manner by temporarily controlling motorized vehicle traffic flow at signalized intersections. The City Council deems it advisable to formulate policies and procedures for the use of the TSPS emitters so that both pedestrians and drivers of motorized vehicles have adequate warning that emergency vehicles are changing normal traffic control timing at signalized intersections.
