Program Description:

The Traffic Safety Program is a joint project with the Governor’s Council. The program utilizes a mentoring team, and is designed to promote traffic safety by making the community aware of the dangers of driving while distracted or impaired, and injuries or fatalities resulting from the improper use of safety belts.  While the overall traffic safety message is aimed at all drivers, the program places emphasis on minority youths and young adult drivers in urban areas.  The unique feature of this program is the involvement of teens referred to as S.T.E.P.PERS who help deliver the program’s traffic safety message through choreographed dance routines.

The Services provided:

  • Traffic safety awareness
  • Positive peer interaction and mentoring among youths to promote safe driving practices and positive behaviors.
