GOVERNOR’S HIGHWAY SAFETY PROGRAM AWARDS MORE THAN $9 MILLION IN HIGHWAY SAFETY GRANTS

RALEIGH — The N.C. Governor’s Highway Safety Program announced today that it has approved more than $9 million in highway safety grants for the 2010 grant year. A total of 139 grants were awarded to police departments, sheriff’s offices and other state and local agencies across North Carolina.

“We are pleased that we are able to provide these funds, which are aimed at improving highway safety in North Carolina,” said GHSP Director Darrell Jernigan. “They provide law enforcement agencies the resources to continue to focus on traffic safety, keeping our cities and towns a safer place to travel.”

The funds are from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and must be used towards highway safety projects. Agencies apply for the grants annually and are chosen based on need, commitment to highway safety, traffic crash and fatality data.

GHSP’s mission is to promote highway safety awareness and reduce the number of traffic crashes and fatalities in North Carolina through the planning and execution of safety programs.
