Additional £2 million for road safety
The money will be shared between 16 local authorities and the road safety groups Brake, the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The amount received by each organisation varied according to requests for specific uses. Brake, for instance, will get £41,136 for the educational resources for Road Safety Week.
Road Safety Minister Jim Fitzpatrick said: 'We already give local authorities £110 million each year to spend on road safety, but this extra investment will support additional projects to help make our roads safer for everyone.'
