These operations are being funded through grant monies received from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission (LHSC), who administers the State’s highway safety grant program. Louisiana’s highway safety program is designed to reduce traffic crashes and the resulting deaths, injuries and property damage. There are three contributing factors associated with a traffic crash: the roadway/environment, the vehicle, and the driver.
