Mississippi honored for reducing traffic fatalities
Each year the Mississippi Department of Public Safety and Mississippi Highway Patrol sets a lofty goal here in this state….the goal of zero fatalities on Mississippi’s interstates and highways. While that goal is yet to be reached, they are making strides towards that achievement and garnered some national attention for their efforts.
At its annual meeting in Charlotte, N.C., the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators announced that the 2011 winner of this prestigious highway safety award was the State of Mississippi. AAMVA Region II President and Commissioner of the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles, Mike Robertson presented the award to Major Jason Jennings representing the Mississippi Department of Public Safety at the North Carolina State Banquet on Wednesday, June 15.
