2009 National Roadway Safety Awards Noteworthy Practices Guide

Noteworthy Practices

This Guide profiles the winners of the 2009 National Roadway Safety Awards, a biennial program of the Roadway Safety Foundation and Federal Highway Administration to recognize lifesaving achievements by public agencies around the country. See pg. 6 for a creative project in Florida to designate "senior zones" that saved lives and reduced speeds near retirement centers. Other infrastructure enhancements that can benefit older road users - from rumblestrips to roundabouts - are also discussed.
