DOT targets seat belts in urban communities

Posted 6/4/12

PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Department of Transportation and the Rhode Island Legislative Black and Latino Caucus will seek proposals from community-based organizations for seat belt education campaigns.

According to a news release last week, the department is making $1 million available over a four-year period for programs that increase seat belt usage, including proper usage of child seats, throughout the state, with special concentration in eight urban communities: Central Falls, Cranston, East Providence, Newport, Pawtucket, Providence, West Warwick and Woonsocket.

DOT’s Office on Highway Safety will hold community workshops this spring.

• Monday, June 4 from 5 - 6:30 p.m. at the St. Martin dePorres Senior Center, 160 Cranston St., Providence.

• Thursday, June 7 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. at the St. Martin dePorres Senior Center, 160 Cranston St., Providence.

• Tuesday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, 20 Dr. Marcus F. Wheatland Blvd., Newport.

• Tuesday, June 12 from 2 - 4 p.m. at Progresso Latino Inc., 626 Broad Street, Central Falls.

Information regarding this grant program also will be posted on RIDOT’s website at www.dot.ri.gov/highwaysafety/ seatbeltgrants.asp. •
