SAN DIEGO--Feb. 26, 2013: Three companies committed to advancing roadway safety were recently awarded prestigious American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) "2013 Innovation Awards" for their creative new products used on America's roadways. The three winners were chosen from a field of 22 companies competing for the awards.

Winners were selected by a team of judges that included roadway engineers and safety experts, who visited the company's exhibits and evaluated their products or services individually that were on display during ATSSA's 43rd Annual Convention and Traffic Expo in San Diego. Since 1969, ATSSA's Traffic Expo has been the largest roadway safety exposition and convention of its kind in North America, featuring the latest in roadway safety products and services that help save lives on roadways. This year's ATSSA Traffic Expo began on Feb. 23 and concluded at 1 p.m. PST today.

The 2013 ATSSA Innovation Award winners are:

First Place: Remote Operated Safety Attendant (ROSA),an innovative flagger's tool used to control traffic from the "safe zone" out of imminent danger, verbal abuse and adverse weather conditions. Developed by Roundspring Technologies Inc., of Springfield, Mo.
