State Farm Sponsoring West Virginia Courtesy Patrol

State Farm is the new sponsor of the Courtesy Patrol, whose personnel assist drivers on the entire 88 miles of the West Virginia Turnpike, from Charleston to Princeton. It now has a new name, the WV Turnpike State Farm Safety Patrol.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice and the West Virginia Parkways Authority announced June 25 that State Farm is the new sponsor of the Courtesy Patrol, whose personnel assist drivers on the entire 88 miles of the West Virginia Turnpike, from Charleston to Princeton. It now has a new name, the WV Turnpike State Farm Safety Patrol.

"With all of our recent investments in our tourism industry and after offering the people of West Virginia a major discount on E-ZPass transponders, my goal is to have people from all over using the turnpike every day to explore our great state. And so the safety and well-being of these motorists absolutely must be our top priority," Justice said. "That's why we're excited to work with a quality company like State Farm so we can make our safety patrol services better than ever and give peace of mind to everyone traveling through our great state as they search for their next adventure in West Virginia."

The patrol is active on the turnpike 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, assisting stranded motorists with flat tires, jump starts, low oil, low water, contacting wrecker services, minor engine problems, and maintaining traffic control during motorist assists and accidents. A free service to those it assists, the patrol also provides maintenance response (debris clean up, spill control, etc.), and communicates with law enforcement agencies regarding incidents. The WV Turnpike State Farm Safety Patrol is expected to attend to more than 9,000 incidents annually.

"Our support of the West Virginia Parkways Authority Courtesy Patrol program embodies our 'good neighbor' philosophy,” said Matthew Coleman, State Farm's marketing director. "It also underscores the continued commitment State Farm has to auto safety, while helping people recover from the unexpected, which is the heart of the State Farm mission." The company also sponsors safety patrols in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
