We are thrilled to announce we have assumed management of the Bucks County Community Traffic Safety Program in partnership with the County of Bucks and the TMA Bucks Foundation.
The Bucks County Community Traffic Safety Program is federal funding (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) distributed to local programs by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and works with law enforcement, local businesses, schools, and the community to reduce the number of annual highway deaths in Bucks County. The program targets demographics with statistically higher numbers of traffic-related fatalities including teens and senior citizens and specific behaviors such as aggressive driving, driving under the influence and distracted driving that contribute to higher crash rates.
“TMA Bucks is extremely excited to manage this important and life-saving program in Bucks County,” said TMA Bucks executive director Stephen Noll. “The TMA has always been committed to providing leadership on highway safety issues in the county and this program will assist us in having the resources to reach more of the community to bring positive change.”
TMA Bucks has been a leading advocate in teen driver safety through its highly successful Bucks County High School Seatbelt Safety Challenge & Teen Driver Safety Video PSA Challenge. The TMA has also provided all Bucks County high schools and colleges with “No Texting While Driving” signs that schools placed at parking lot exits to remind student drivers of Pennsylvania’s anti-texting law.
The Bucks County Community Traffic Safety Program will be managed by Carly Mannon and headquartered at the County of Bucks Emergency Services Training Center at 1760 South Easton Road in Doylestown and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 267-895-5186.
