From The Florida Department of Transportation Road Ranger site:

The service patrol concept, known today as the Road Rangers, is a free service of the Florida Department of Transportation and its partners and was initially used for the management of vehicle incidents in construction zones. This program has since expanded to respond to all types of incidents and has become one of the most effective elements of the Department’s incident management program. The Road Rangers provide a direct service to motorists by quickly clearing travel lanes of minor incidents and assisting motorists.
