From the article:
“Kramer said rumble strips reduce run-off accidents by 49 percent. He said rumble strips snap the driver to attention before the vehicle leaves the roadway. He said many drivers, including younger drivers, go off the pavement and tend to over-correct and either roll their vehicle or cross the center lane into oncoming traffic or fly off the opposite side of the road. This is the kind of accident rumble strips prevent.”
FHWA has long endorsed shoulder and center-line rumble strips as low cost, safety countermeasures. Read more in the ATSSA publication, “Low Cost SafetyRoad Solutions”, available on the FHWA web site.
We’re leaving tomorrow for ATSSA Expo. Hope to see you there!
The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation promotes “roadway safety through charitable giving and public awareness programs.”
PSS is a member of the American Traffic Saftey Services Association (ATSSA), of which ATSS Foundation is part. Tim Cox, our National Sales Manager, recently served as ATSS Foundation President.
ATSSF will hold the shooting event on February 22, right before the annual ATSSA Traffic Conference and Expo.
From the press release:
“The new event offers participants and sponsors alternative fundraising or sponsorship opportunities versus those available during the traditional golf tournament,” said ATSS Foundation President Sue Reiss. “Most importantly, we will be raising funds that directly assist those children who have lost a loved one in a work zone accident.”
We have a new highway bill.
We are members of ATTSA, the American Traffic Safety Services Association. Their response to the good news is here.

Did we mention that PSS recently won a 2012 ATSSA Innovation Award for RoadQuake 2, our latest rumble strip? The “Inno” (as we in the traffic safety biz call it) is the leading indicator of next year’s Academy Award winners, donchaknow…
ATSSA awarded us their prestigious Innovation Award, at ATSSA Expo, Feb 15-17, in Phoenix. We took 2nd place for one of our new products, RoadQuake Modular Temporary Portable Rumble Strip!
Readers may recall we took 2nd for the original RoadQuake at ATSSA Expo in 2009.
We would like to thank members of the academy, our parents,
We would like to thank ATSSA judges, ATSSA staff, and our many friends and customers for their continued support.
We will add RoadQuake Modular and SafetyWall ADA-Compliant Pedestrian Barricade to our web site later this week. In the meantime, write me if you’d like me to e-mail our flyers: email@example.com

The picture is from our 25th Anniversary celebration, held at ATSSA Expo, in New Orleans, in 2008.
We served a New Orleans lunch buffet of red beans and rice, shrimp gumbo, local assorted pastries, and a whole lot of draft beer. As you may imagine, we were a very popular booth.
