The state's office of traffic safety awarded West Covina a $45,737 grant to be used for the enforcement of safer streets.
The Selective Traffic Enforcement Program grant's purpose is to assist in efforts to deal with traffic safety problems and reduce the number of persons killed and injured in traffic collisions.
The grant activities will target driving under the influence offenders, red light running, problematic intersections, speeders, motorcycle safety through the use of checkpoints and special enforcement operations.
The grant will also fund court stings targeting DUI offenders with suspended or revoked driver's licenses who get behind the wheel after leaving court.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
