The Freeway Service Patrol program (FSP) is a program managed by the California Highway Patrol and provides emergency roadside assistance on freeways. The Freeway Service Patrol is designed to increase roadway safety, reduce motorist delays, reduce freeway congestion, reduce air pollution,
and improve overall efficiency of freeway operations. FSP is a fleet of roving white tow trucks on the lookout for stalls and accidents during peak commute hours. Over 350 CHP certified and supervised tow truck drivers assist 50,000 motorists monthly on California freeways at no charge to the motorist. The El Dorado County FSP operates from the El Dorado/Sacramento County line approximately ten miles east on US 50.

Our goal is to make this service as friendly and as swift as possible. You can help improve this service by answering a few short questions sharing your FSP experience.
