So how is it different in that respect from the Safety Car?

The running of many meetings could do with a major tightening up .
Unnecessary course car or circuit tours , delays in dispatching recovery vehicles also slow loading and the time taken for returning cars to the paddock or pits . Not having following races ready to go to circuit .
Winners parade laps and unnecessary full circuit laps after a crossing the finnish line could all be looked at .
It's so easy running a race meeting!

Course cars are needed to pick up written reports. Loading may often appear slow for a variety of reasons - a good recovery team will take care to ensure that, no matter how badly damaged the car, it suffers no further damage during the recovery operation.

And might I suggest the total waste of time and space called the Incedent board be finally put to good use and used as fuel at the end of meeting BBQ .
If by "incedent" (sic) board you mean the hazard board, its purpose is, to quote the Blue Book, "awarning of a hazard that was not present when the practice/race commenced." Arguably, if the hazard board were not available more yellow flags would have to be used.

It would help if more drivers knew what it is. . .
