About two weeks ago, I attended the Lifesavers Conference held in Long Beach, California. Lifesavers is the largest traffic safety conference held in America. The conference has been educating and collaborating on traffic safety for the past thirty-four years; I was able to attend their thirty-fourth conference by being one of their grant recipients. Unfortunately, I was not able to stay for the entire length of the conference and, yet I still gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from Lifesavers. While attending the conference, I participated in workshops lead by professionals, students, and law officers. During the exhibit hall conference attendees could share ideas and try some of the newest developments in traffic safety technology.
Lifesavers is also a great opportunity to connect with professionals and businesses from across the country. Compared to other conferences that I have attended, Lifesavers really stands out because of its professionalism, engagement with law enforcement, and mission statement. Lifesavers and its many associates plan to Drive To 0—meaning one day we will not lose a life to car crashes. I believe that if Lifesavers continues to meet and share the advancement of traffic safety, the hope to end car crash fatalities will become a reality.
