Participate in Road-Tech's Fundraising Challenge to Support The Foundation

Are you fast enough to beat Road-Tech's crew at setting up and tearing down an advanced warning sign?
Watch Road-Tech's challenge video.

If you are, then you can raise $20 for the American Traffic Safety Services Foundation.

Here's How it Works:

  • Get a two man crew, an advanced warning sign (with stand & flags) and a camera
  • Video yourself setting up and tearing down faster than Road-Tech
  • Submit that video to Ben at Road-Tech via email, LinkedIn, Facebook, or upload to your YouTube page and send the link to Ben
  • Road-Tech will donate $10 to The Foundation if your set up time beats their time and another $10 if your tear down time beats their time

This challenge has been extended to November 4, 2016 so get your entries in now! View Road-Tech's blog post for additional information.

Contact Ben Jeffrey at 530-903-1262 if you have any questions regarding this challenge.

Support Work Zone Awareness with The Foundation: Help The Foundation spread the word about awareness for work zone safety by sharing our Public Service Announcements (PSAs).

  • 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 Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships for loved ones of fallen or permanently disabled workers and Experience Camps Travel Scholarships for children of workers killed in work zones 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.
