ATSSA talks roadway safety during Infrastructure Week, May 13-20

ATSSA advocates for investment in roadway safety infrastructure during awareness campaign

ATSSA is participating in Infrastructure Week this week, advocating as the leader in roadway safety infrastructure.

Infrastructure Week is a national awareness campaign that shares the facts on investing in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, and advocates for decision makers on Capitol Hill to support infrastructure policy and investment.

“More and more, Americans across the country are supporting increased investments in infrastructure. In 2018, 77 percent of state and local infrastructure ballot measures were approved by voters across the United States. During Infrastructure Week, it’s a crucial time for all of us to spread the message that Safer Roads Save Lives, and roadway safety infrastructure makes a difference. Let’s build for tomorrow, for a future where there are no deaths or serious injuries on our nation’s roadways and families arrive home alive,” said ATSSA’s Vice President of Government Relations Nate Smith.

Partner organizations across the country are sharing the message that we need to #BuildForTomorrow and invest in all areas of infrastructure.

“Roadway safety infrastructure devices save lives each day on our roadways. We call on Congress and the White House to take action in investing in infrastructure; ensuring long-term solvency for the Highway Trust Fund, reauthorizing the highway funding bill, and putting Americans to work manufacturing, installing, and maintaining lifesaving roadway safety infrastructure devices,” said ATSSA’s President and CEO Roger Wentz.

An investment of $146 billion in cost-effective roadway safety infrastructure improvements has the potential to save about 63,700 lives and prevent 353,560 serious injuries over a 20-year time period, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Roadway safety infrastructure improvements that contribute to this figure include median barrier, signalized pedestrian crossings, and shoulder and centerline rumble strips.
