The Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) would like your ideas for new traffic safety projects that could be included in the Highway Safety Plan. OTS receives funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to develop, implement, and coordinate projects likely to decrease the number of traffic deaths and serious injuries on Minnesota roads by changing behavior - increasing seat belt use; decreasing impaired driving, speeding or distracted driving; or improving the safety of motorcyclists and pedestrians.
Learn more about submitting a project idea. If you have an idea, submit the Informal Idea Solicitation Form to Shannon Ryder by 4 p.m. March 22.

Video Description: Janet Carlson considered herself a social drinker. Three DWIs later, she's pleading with people to plan ahead for a sober ride. Her story is a reminder of how making a wrong choice can happen to anyone.
