Kaine Announces Millions In Transportation Safety Grants

July 25, 2007

Governor Kaine announced Wednesday the award of more than $13 million in grants to local, state, and non-profit programs that support transportation safety.

The grants, primarily comprised of federal funds, include $2.6 million in local matching funds. This as Virginia experiences an increase in the number of traffic fatalities and is higher than the national average.

The funds will be used to support programs designed to increase the use of safety belts and child safety seats, deter aggressive and impaired driving, and promote awareness of risks for both teen and older drivers.
