A HERO when you need one on the road
Rescue units work highways to help stranded motorists, clear debris, keep traffic flowing
HERO Justin Cochran assists a motorist in changing a tire along Interstate 85 South.
Justin Cochran talks in his two-way radio and glances at a laptop computer attached to the console of his truck. This while steering his truck through Atlanta traffic, on and off interstate ramps and around busy side streets like he has Google Maps in his head. And when there’s a stranded motorist, he pulls to the shoulder, bolts from the truck as traffic flies past and fetches the needed tools to get the motorist back on his way.
