The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility currently has staff attending the 2011 Lifesavers Conference on Highway Safety Priorities in Phoenix, AZ. Lifesavers is the premier national highway safety meeting in the United States dedicated to reducing the tragic toll of deaths and injuries on our nation's roadways. Each year, the Lifesavers Conference provides a forum that delivers relevant and timely common-sense solutions to today's critical highway safety problems.

Governor Janice Brewer states, “Arizona has the toughest laws against impaired driving in the country; and we’re proud that Arizona law enforcement officers apply laws regarding seat belts, speeding, and aggressive driving with unparalleled vigor and diligence – thereby preventing needless tragedies on our streets and highways.”

The conference addresses a wide range of safety topics, from child passenger safety and occupant protection to roadway and vehicle safety and technology. It offers the latest information on advances in highway safety, highlights successful programs and draws attention to emerging safety issues.

We always learn something new at the Lifesavers Conference, and are enjoying this year’s event. Let us know if you’re out in Arizona as well!
