Recognizing the 50th anniversary of the American Traffic Safety Services Association, the international organization for the roadway safety infrastructure industry, celebrating its milestones and achievements, and its efforts on saving lives and reducing injuries on United States roadways.

Whereas, in 1970, the establishment of the American Traffic Safety Services Association became an international organization;

Whereas the year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the American Traffic Safety Services Association;

Whereas the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), which established the Highway Safety Improvement Program as a core Federal-aid program, created extensive new resources and opportunities to advance highway safety throughout the United States, resulting in significant reductions in fatalities and injuries on United States roadways;

Whereas, in 1998, the Flagger Instructor Training course was developed, which resulted in the American Traffic Safety Services Association training approximately 50,000 flaggers every year;

Whereas, in 2013, the American Traffic Safety Services Association offered its first online training course, the National Online Flagger Course, which has grown to 8 online courses; and

Whereas the American Traffic Safety Services Association advocates to advance roadway safety, infrastructure investment, and overall focus of moving Toward Zero Deaths and reducing fatalities and injuries on roadways throughout the United States: Now, therefore, be it
