WASHINGTON, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GHSA is saddened to learn of Secretary Ray LaHood's departure from the Department of Transportation. As Secretary, his commitment to behavioral highway safety was unprecedented. Never before had a DOT Secretary been so dedicated to addressing driver behavior, which continues to account for the vast majority of traffic deaths.

While Secretary LaHood is perhaps best known for his passion in combating distracted driving, he also brought attention to other critical behavioral issues, including drunk driving, occupant protection and child passenger safety. Under his leadership, the Department worked closely with GHSA and its members to achieve tremendous gains in highway safety.

We wish Secretary LaHood well in his future endeavors and are confident the Obama Administration will appoint a strong replacement.
