Annually, Destination Safe issues a call to fund education and enforcement programs that will reduce fatalities and serious injuries related to the focus areas outlined in the Blueprint.
The coalition is focusing specifically on the five non-infrastructure-related focus areas that have been a factor in at least 50 fatalities or 300 serious injuries in the past five years in our region. These focus areas include:
- Unrestrained occupants
- Aggressive drivers
- Impaired drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Youth motorists (15-25)
The call releases in late February. Applications are accepted through early April. The Destination Safe Leadership Team meets in late May to review and prioritize projects for funding consideration. Recommendations are sent to MoDOT and KDOT shortly thereafter.
The last five years of funding recommendations are listed below:
