According to news sources, a grant aimed at increasing safety on the roadway has been awarded to the Pittsfield Police Department to help them in their ongoing effort to maintain enforcement of crosswalk laws as well other safety measures.
The $7,500 safety grant was awarded to the department by The Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security. The stated goal of the grant is to educate motorists, bicyclists as well as pedestrians on how to share the road with one another. Also part of the grant are funds specifically designed to increase enforcement of crosswalk laws to protect both motorists and pedestrians alike.
The latest grant being released to the department is only part of an ongoing, $159,000 effort being awarded to ensure increased public safety.
