The Office of Highway Safety (OHS) is stressing the importance of traffic safety after a deadly first week in July and reminding motorists law enforcement officers are out enforcing these laws to help protect the public and save lives. Several enforcement campaigns are in effect to address speeding, impaired driving, motorcycle safety, pedestrian safety and seat belt use; most of which were a factor in the crashes last week.
Legislation championed by Attorney General Biden, national authorities on the law, and state legislative leaders which strengthens the fight against human trafficking was enacted in a signing ceremony this afternoon in Legislative Hall.
“We can only reach our potential as a state if we maximize the potential of our people,” said Governor Markell. “While our work toward that goal never ends, we can be proud of the progress made toward that goal during the legislative season that ended this week. By spending taxpayers’ money wisely and keeping our focus on economic opportunity for all of our people, we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”
After signing a Fiscal Year 2015 budget that fully funded the state’s new urban revitalization program, Governor Jack Markell announced the release of a draft application for cities, towns, and unincorporated areas to be designated among Delaware’s first Downtown Development Districts.
Program highlights include candle-dipping workshops, Nipper the dog and Dutch-American Heritage Day.
