WFPD Urges Citizens to Be Safe, Buckle Up, and Drive Smart

Although the WFPD has completed the 2014 CIOT Grant, the city is still working the state STEP grant through the end of September.  The WFPD wants to remind everyone to buckle up, slow down and obey all traffic control devices at intersections (red lights, stop or yield signs, etc).

The largest portion of traffic safety funding from TxDot is used for the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) projects, which pay for overtime activities by local law enforcement to reduce the incidence of speeding, driving while intoxicated, failure to use occupant restraint systems, and intersection traffic control violations. Organizations eligible for STEP funds include the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS), sheriff’s offices, constable’s offices, and community police departments.

Be Safe…Buckle Up…and Drive Smart!
