Host the National Work Zone MemorialAbstract:
The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation invites organizations to submit an application to host the Work Zone Memorial. The exhibition honors roadway workers, emergency and law enforcement personnel, pedestrians, and private vehicle occupants who have lost their lives in work zone accidents, and is a living tribute to their memory. The exhibition brings to the attention of the motoring public and the media the fact that about 900 men, women and children are killed senselessly in work zones each year. It travels to communities cross-country year-round to raise awareness of the need to respect and stay safe in America’s roadway work zones. The Memorial is available starting in late February, 2004.
