2013 National Roadway Safety Awards

Since 1998, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has joined with the Roadway Safety Foundation (RSF) biennially to recognize innovative, efficient roadway safety projects and programs that eliminate or sharply reduce highway deaths across the country. Awards are presented in three categories.

FHWA and RSF presented 11 awards and 1 honorable mention at a luncheon ceremony on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, in Washington, DC.  Roadway Safety Foundation Executive Director Gregory M. Cohen served as Master of Ceremonies and John D. Porcari, USDOT Deputy Secretary, delivered the keynote address, highlighting the importance of the award winners' efforts in saving lives on America's roadways. Executives and high-level representatives from a number of core roadway safety organizations joined together to honor these dedicated and innovative award recipients.
