Incentive Grants To Support Increased Safety Belt Use Rates Section 406 Implementing Guidelines
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announces a new primary safety belt use law and safety belt performance grant program to increase safety belt use by Americans in passenger motor vehicles. The program makes funds available during fiscal years 2006 through 2009 to provide a one-time only grant to States that enact and enforce primary safety belt use laws within certain time periods or achieve 85 percent or higher safety belt use for two consecutive years without a primary safety belt use law. This notice informs the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Guam and the Virgin Islands, through their Governors' Representatives for Highway Safety, of the application procedures to receive grant funds to be made available in fiscal years 2006 through 2009.
