NM Gets Nearly $1 Million for Highway Safety
The U.S. Department of Transportation is awarding New Mexico nearly $1 million to reduce deaths and injuries on the state's highways.
The annual grant funding was made available through the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act.
U.S. Sen. Tom Udall says states can use the money for initiatives to increase seatbelt use, for anti-drunken driving campaigns and other programs aimed at making the roads safer.
