Grant targets motorcycle safety, drunken driving


The New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency will receive $1.4 million to support programs focused on motorcycle safety and drunken driving prevention, according to a release from U.S. Rep. Ann McLane Kuster.

The grants, administered through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, are to be used to conduct motorcycle safety demonstrations and hold sobriety checkpoints, the release said.

“Highway safety is something that affects every New Hampshire driver,” Kuster, D-N.H., said in a statement. “This funding will help the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency continue its essential work of keeping our drivers safe and our roads secure.”

About $1.1 million will go toward sobriety checkpoints, breathalyzer devices and other drunken driving prevention efforts, about $300,000 will be used for seatbelt education programs and about $34,000 will be used for motorcycle safety demonstrations, the release said.
