  • Toward Zero Deaths: The Foundation advances programs that bring drivers to the table to address work zone death and injury. Foundation brochure
  • Toward Zero Scholarships: The Foundation provides scholarships for loved ones of fallen workers until we can reduce the number of work zone deaths.  It is our hope to eventually give out zero scholarships as a result of zero fatalities.
  • Toward Zero Names: The Foundation offers the National Work Zone Memorial honoring lives lost in work zones to help make fatalities "real" to policy makers and drivers.  It is our hope to eventually add zero names as a result of zero fatalities.


The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation (The Foundation) exists to promote roadway safety through charitable giving and public awareness programs.


Through the activities of The Foundation, roadway safety has become a cultural priority.  The public is aware of the need for roadway safety.  Fallen workers are not forgotten and their families are supported.  Decision-makers are motivated to invest in sustaining our message and advancing our mission.  Improved safety on our roadways has resulted in a decline in work zone injuries and deaths.
