Vision...Helping keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians safe.

The Traffic Safety program … educates the community about safety and the inherent risks of driving  while under the influence of intoxicants.  Traffic collisions remain the number one cause of death  in many age groups of our society today.  We could save thousands of lives every year by simply buckling up, reducing our speed and using the designated driver program.
