Lipinski Receives Roadway Safety Champion Award
The American Traffic Safety Services Association has awarded U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Western Springs, its Roadway Safety Champion Award.
Lipinski has worked to ensure that the Highway Safety Improvement Program remains a key component of the next surface transportation authorization, according to a news release from his office.
“It’s an honor to call Rep. Lipinski a roadway safety advocate, a transportation leader, and a friend,” ATSSA President & CEO Roger A. Wentz said in the news release. “His work in Congress has directly contributed to the reduction of roadway fatalities and injuries in Illinois and across the country. For these accomplishments, the roadway safety industry cannot thank him enough. ATSSA looks forward to working with both the Congressman and the entire U.S. Congress to enact a safety-focused, long-term highway bill in the weeks ahead.”
Lipinski said it was an honor to receive the award.
“As a leader locally and nationally on transportation issues, I understand the need to continually work to make our transportation network safer,” he said in the news release. “Over the years, I have brought people together to solve problems, an unfortunate rarity in Washington today. When the safety of the American people is at stake, we need problem solvers, not endless debate and gridlock.”
