This story should some relief to anyone who drives Highway 101 in Marin during peak commuter hours. The California Highway Patrol just launched a new program with the single goal of keeping traffic moving.

Under the new plan, called Clear, several officers will be assigned to do nothing except clear minor accidents quickly during peak commute times. The units will not even have to investigate the accidents. That will be done by other patrol officers after the vehicles are off the road.
