Grant Makes Traffic Safety Resources Available

SALISBURY, MD----Salisbury State University, through a grant from the Maryland Highway Safety Administration, is providing traffic safety resources to the community through the Eastern Shore Regional Safe Communities Center. The center is part of the Wellness Programs of Student Health Services at SSU.

Part of the statewide Maryland Regional Safe Communities Centers: Partnerships for Traffic Safety, the SSU-based center promotes traffic safety to reduce motor vehicle-related injuries and fatalities and their associated costs.

Traffic safety programs addressed include occupant protection, impaired, aggressive, drowsy or distracted driving, pedestrian, bicycle and school bus safety, bystander care, and younger and older driver issues.

The center provides a free library of incentives, printed materials, videos and programs support resources. These resources are available, free of charge, to educators, church and community leaders, organizations and the general public.

The project director is F. Christian Byrnes Jr. "There is one fatal, vehicle-related crash every 13 minutes," said Brynes. "Having resources to combat this problem locally is essential to the well being of our community."

For more information, please call Byrnes at the Eastern Shore Regional Safe Communities Center at 410-543-6309.
