Nation's Top Highway Safety Awards for 2012

NHTSA Presents Nation's Top Highway Safety Awards for 2012 
 


15 safety advocates and organizations are recognized at annual Lifesavers Conference


LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – David Strickland, Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), today presented the agency's top Public Service Awards to 15 safety advocates and organizations at the 30th Annual Lifesavers Conference. Each year NHTSA recognizes safety leaders from around the country for making outstanding contributions to improving highway safety.

"With roadway deaths at historic lows, it's clear we're making real progress in improving safety for motorists," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "That success is thanks in no small part to the contributions made by our 2012 honorees, who exemplify the highest level of professionalism and dedication to saving lives every single day."

The NHTSA Public Service Awards were presented at an annual conference hosted by Lifesavers, a national, non-profit organization of private and public groups and individuals dedicated to improving highway safety. The Lifesavers meeting provides a forum for safety advocates to share the latest data and best practices. The award winners are dedicated to promoting highway and traffic safety, and saving lives across America.

"While safety has always been our agency's highest priority, we rely on the continued leadership of safety practitioners across the country to help tackle the most dangerous driving practices – whether the issue is drunk driving, seatbelt use, or distraction," said NHTSA Administrator David Strickland. "The honorees today know firsthand the kind of dedication needed to keep our roadways safe, from promoting traffic safety in their communities, to developing and implementing innovative programs, to providing invaluable hands-on experience on a daily basis."

NHTSA data show that highway deaths fell to 32,885 in 2010, the lowest level since 1949. The record-breaking decline in traffic fatalities occurred even as American drivers traveled nearly 46 billion more miles during the year, an increase of 1.6 percent over the 2009 level. 2010 also saw the lowest fatality rate ever recorded, with 1.10 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in 2010, down from 1.15 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in 2009. Early estimates for 2011 fatality and injury data indicate these historic lows continued through last year.
