  Comprehensive Traffic Safety Programs (CTSP's)  
Comprehensive Traffic Safety Program grants address multiple traffic safety concerns within a county or region.
CTSP grants include numerous tasks and strategies involving enforcement, education and engineering.
The potential grantee must provide a detailed Problem Identification section with extensive information about the community, data analysis, and creative solutions.
  Pedestrian and Bicycle Education and Enforcement  
Because the proportion of pedestrian fatalities in New Jersey is well above the national average, pedestrian safety is a continuing priority.
The goal of the pedestrian safety program area is to lower the pedestrian fatality and injury crash rates.
The potential Pedestrian Safety Enforcement and Education Grantee must provide a detailed Problem Identification Section detailing the pedestrian safety issues using data.
Bicycle safety grants must include education and enforcement for bicycle helmet use, and identify a sizeable bicycling population.
Contact the Region Supervisor to find out if you qualify and to discuss potential funding amounts.
  Occupant Protection Education and Enforcement  
The current seat belt usage rate in New Jersey is 91%.
The goal of the seat belt program is to continue to raise this usage rate in the years ahead and increase proper use of child restraints.
In the South Region, seat belt grant funding is distributed through the annual Click It or Ticket two-week enforcement mobilization by invitation only. Agencies may contact the Region Supervisor if they have not been included in recent initiatives.
Currently there are no year-round seat belt grants available.
Child passenger safety grants are concentrated at the regional or County level, focusing on consistently scheduled “stations” in lieu of roving checkpoints. Booster seat education materials have been developed and grantees are required to address this issue.
  Impaired Driving  
The proportion of alcohol-related fatalities in New Jersey is 19%.
In the South Region, impaired driving grant funding is primarily distributed through the annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" two-week enforcement crackdown. County agencies (such as Prosecutor's Offices) can apply for grants to coordinate county-wide sobriety checkpoints. Contact the Region Supervisor to be considered for the next funding cycle.
Year-round, innovative impaired driving grants involving enforcement and education will also be considered. This includes law enforcement, judicial, health, and educational professionals who can document trends related to DWI and
drug impaired driving.
The growing trend in the South Region is in multi-jurisdictional saturation patrols during peak DWI periods. Contact the Region Supervisor for more information.
Education and enforcement may include impairment from substances other than alcohol.
  Aggressive Driving  
Aggressive Driving, residential speeding and distracted driving are seen as major quality of life issues in most New Jersey communities.
Limited grant funding is available for overtime enforcement related to aggressive driving, distracted driving and speeding. Agencies must be able to identify the problem through crash statistics and summons data, and the problem must be significant.
  Mobilizations and Crackdowns  
All police agencies in the South Region are expected to support statewide enforcement campaigns, whether funded or non-funded:
Click It or Ticket: May 2014
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (2): August and December 2014
For additional information on these or other programs please contact Ray Reeve, South Region Supervisor, at 609-633-9093 or
