National passenger car regulations (LPR)

The LPR is geared to the use of a salvage company for small-scale incidents involving passenger cars. The core of this measure is that the police emergency room / regional traffic centre immediately warns the LCM (National Notification Centre) when an incident is reported, without police duty officers / highways inspectors having arrived at the scene. The LCM then calls in a contracted salvage company as quickly as possible for the primary salvage.

Research reveals that this action reduces the total process by an average of 15 minutes. This measure is very effective in view of the large number of such incidents that occur nationwide.

National truck regulations (LVR)

The LVR concerns the use of a truck salvage company for incidents involving trucks. The core of this measure is that the police emergency room / regional traffic centre immediately warns the CMV (Truck Salvage Notification Centre) when an incident is reported, without police duty officers / highways inspectors having arrived at the scene. The CMV in its turn then calls in a truck salvage company contracted by Rijkswaterstaat as quickly as possible for the primary salvage.

The direct designation of a contracted truck salvage company considerably shortens the time of processing an incident and prevents an owner or haulage company from calling in its own salvage vehicle that sometimes has a long distance to travel and has neither properly qualified personnel or the right material and equipment.

National tow-away regulations (LWR)

Abandoned vehicles within the so-called obstacle-free zone that are a hazard to traffic can be ordered by Rijkswaterstaat or the police to be towed away.

The salvage company is compensated for the costs of salvage by the highways authority. The costs incurred by Rijkswaterstaat for the salvage operation are claimed on the owner/holder of the respective salvage vehicle. If this concerns a municipal tow-away situation, in principle this takes precedence over the IM tow-away regulations of Rijkswaterstaat. For more information about these regulations click here.
