    TxDOT funding supports the targets and strategies of traffic safety programs to reduce the number of motor vehicle related crashes, injuries, and fatalities in Texas. These targets and strategies form the basis for the FY 2018 Texas Highway Safety Plan (HSP). 
    In FY 2019, TxDOT will focus solely on the General Traffic Safety Program. This initiative funds non-enforcement projects which address any of the following highway safety program areas:
    • Alcohol and other Drug Countermeasures - Proposals are being accepted that address the problems of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving under the Influence (DUI) of Alcohol by Minor.
    • Distracted Driving - Proposals are being accepted for raising the awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. 
    • Motorcycle Safety - Proposals are being accepted for raising the awareness of rider education, rider awareness, and motorist awareness. 
    • Occupant Protection - Proposals are being accepted for the execution of one statewide conference (1-2 days in length) for child passenger safety technicians and instructors to raise awareness of CPS issues and conduct needed in-service training for CPS techs and instructors
    • Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety - Proposals are being accepted for (1) improving riding skills and knowledge of traffic laws among adult bicyclists and (2) to provide education efforts that address and reduce the growing number of pedestrian fatalities and injuries.
    • Traffic Records - Proposals are being accepted to conduct one Traffic Records Program Area Assessment
    • Driver Education and Behavior - Proposals are being accepted to (1) conduct one Driver Education Program Assessment, and (2) to identify the major contributing teen crash causation factors and examining how these factors are taught to young adults in the Teen and Adult Driver Education. The proposal should recommend curriculum modifications and create new or identify existing ancillary materials to support driver education teachers, driving safety instructors, and parents in the training of these high risk areas to reduce crashes in these areas.
    • Surveys, Studies, or Analysis - Proposals are being accepted for conducting surveys to asses (1) statewide occupant restraint use, (2) statewide mobile communication use, (3) statewide driver attitude and awareness of traffic safety programs, and (4) safety belt use in ten cities during the Click It or Ticket (CIOT) campaign; pre, mid, post campaign.
    Additional funding is available for General Traffic Safety Grants. These projects should be supported by relevant traffic safety data and provide a clear, concise, and accurate description of the problem that the project aims to address.
