- Residents/Common Questions
Faced with insufficient funds to adequately improve our roads, the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) turned to technology, in the form of the Faster And Safer Travel Through Routing and Advanced Controls (FAST-TRAC) program.

If you've ever noticed the safety problems that occur when a traffic signal goes "black," you can appreciate the vital 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year mission of the Road Commission for Oakland County's Traffic-Safety Department.
What Is the Road Commission?
In Michigan, all roads fall under one of three jurisdictions. About 8 percent are state highways (which includes interstates). Cities and villages control 17 percent of roads. The remaining 75 percent fall under the jurisdiction of countywide governmental agencies known as road commissions.
Because safety is the number one priority for RCOC, when snow storms hit, we're out there plowing and salting to ensure the roads remain as ice-free as possible. But doing that during a major snow storm can be a real challenge.
