Unifying Alabama's Traffic Safety Efforts
     Working Together to Save Lives    

ADECA is the department that houses the Governor's Highway Safety Office. It is located in the Law Enforcement and Traffic Safety division of ADECA. The North Alabama Highway Safety Office (NAHSO) and thet Greater Birmingham Traffic Safety Program are two examples of the nine Community Traffic Safety Program (CTSP) regions located across the state.

Today, ADECA is responsible for administering a broad range of state and federal programs that contribute to the department’s mission — Building Better Alabama Communities. Each year we distribute hundreds of millions of dollars to Alabama cities, counties, non-profit organizations and others. Our grants support economic development projects, infrastructure improvements, job training, energy conservation, law enforcement, traffic safety, recreation development and assistance to low-income families. We also work to monitor and protect Alabama’s water resources, and we distribute state and federal surplus property to local governments and other qualified organizations.

Governor Ivey Awards $3.47 Million for Highway Safety Enforcement Campaigns
Elmore & Autauga News: Gov. Kay Ivey has awarded grants totaling nearly $3.5 million to support law enforcement efforts to make Alabama roads safer by preventing injuries and fatalities.

The state’s four regional traffic safety offices will use the funds to cover overtime for local police officers and sheriff’s deputies conducting extra patrols and checkpoints during peak travel times targeting speeding, seat belt violations and drunken driving. Some funds will cover extra patrols during the annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign from Aug. 17 to Sept. 3 and “Click It or Ticket” from May 21 to June 3, 2018.

“Drivers who get behind the wheel while impaired or disobey traffic laws present a danger to every motorist on the road,” Ivey said. “With this funding, I am pleased to support the local police officers and sheriffs’ deputies who work long hours to enforce the law and provide motorists with a clear reminder to drive safely and responsibly.”

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grants from funds made available to the state by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. ADECA manages a wide array of programs that support law enforcement and traffic safety, workforce development, energy conservation, water resource management, economic development and recreation.
