The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) is a state agency whose goal is to eliminate traffic deaths and injuries. OTS seeks to accomplish this goal by making available grants to local and state public agencies for programs that help them enforce traffic laws, educate the public in traffic safety, and provide varied and effective means of reducing fatalities, injuries and economic losses from collisions. This is the third grant that OTS will be partnering with STA on to improve safety in Solano County.
