Highway Safety Programs
 
{Decorative Line}
The goal of the Connecticut Highway Safety Program is to prevent roadway fatalities and injuries as a result of crashes related to driver behavior. Under the Highway Safety Act of 1966 (U.S. 23 USC- Chapter 4) the Governor is required to implement a highway safety program through a designated State agency suitably equipped and organized to carry out the program. An appointed Governorís Highway Safety Representative oversees the program and supporting Section 402 highway safety grant funds are made available to the States to carry out their annual Highway Safety Plans. The Connecticut Highway Safety program is an extension of this Federal requirement.

Enforcement efforts, combined with bi-lingual media, public information and education campaigns, training programs for law enforcement, car seat technicians, motorcycle safety instructors and other safety professionals make up the basis of Highway Safety activity. The success of the Highway Safety Program is contingent upon cooperation and coordination with safety partners and the motoring public.
