National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Recognizes Dedicated Safety Champions at Annual Lifesavers Conference

Contact: Derrell Lyles, 202-366-9550 | Email: Public.Affairs@dot.gov

DENVER – Today at the 31st Annual Lifesavers Conference, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) presented 14 individuals and organizations with the agency's top public service award for their tireless efforts in advancing highway safety throughout the country.

“Safety is the Department of Transportation’s top priority,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “But we can’t get there alone. The individuals we recognize today are making a difference by helping reduce highway fatalities and injuries in states and localities across the country.”

The Lifesavers conference brings together individuals and public safety groups who all share the common goal of making America’s roads and communities safer. Participants are introduced to fresh ideas that help promote life-saving strategies and techniques. The innovative concepts shared during Lifesavers help participants create relevant solutions for highway safety problems in their individual jurisdictions. This year’s conference, hosted by the non-profit Lifesavers organization, runs from April 14-16, and is expected to draw well over 1,500 participants and 95 exhibitors.

“The individuals and organizations that are being honored today have exemplified extraordinary commitment to keeping drivers safe on our nation’s roadways,” said NHTSA Administrator David Strickland. “These awards are just a small token of our appreciation for their hard work and substantial contributions helping to improve traffic safety throughout the year.”
