Approximately 550 highway safety, law enforcement, and public health officials from across the country are registered to attend, the largest expected attendance in GHSA's history, according to a release from GSA.

The 2010 meeting theme is Technology and Highway Safety: What's Driving Our Future? General sessions and breakout workshops will examine both the benefits and challenges technology presents as GHSA works together with its members and partners toward highway safety.
