Revenue Sources for Financing Transportation Safety Activities in Virginia

Report No: 81-R29

Published in 1980

About the report:

Senate Bill 85, an action of the 1978 General Assembly, amended the Code of Virginia to provide, in part, that the Division of Highway Safety be succeeded by the newly created Department of Transportation Safety effective July 1, 1978. In its Declaration of Policy, §33.1-390, the amended Code states that it is the policy of the Commonwealth to "investigate, evaluate and promote the safe movement of people and property by all modes highway, railway, waterway, airway, and mass transit." This report reviews possible sources of revenue for the support of safety activities in all of the above transportation modes except highway. It also identifies the Virginia agencies that are receiving these funds, or that are eligible to receive them, and the means by which the Virginia Department of Transportation Safety could interact with these agencies in the conduct of a statewide transportation safety program.
