Governor’s Highway Safety Program


The Governor’s Highway Safety Program’s Region 5 West Virginia High Tech Corridor Highway Safety Program is located within the Central Business District of Clarksburg. Responsible for 16 counties, the Region 5 office encourages, promotes, and supports highway safety throughout Monongalia, Marion, Harrison Preston, Taylor, Doddridge, Barbour, Tucker, Gilmer, Lewis, Ritchie, Calhoun, Wirt, Roane, Upshur, and Randolph counties. Region 5 is the largest region, fiscally within the Governor’s Highway Safety.

Out of the eight (8) regions, Region 5 focuses on the High Tech Corridor Highway Safety. The Governor’s Highway Safety Program works with all police departments located within the region, such as the Clarksburg Police Department to focus on problematic areas of occupant protection, impaired driving, community traffic safety, and underage alcohol consumption. In doing so, the Governor’s Highway Safety Program Region 5 provides grant funding to police departments within their Region to implement special shifts to focus on the following: DUI, distracted driving, school zones, traffic construction, and click-it or ticket-it. Officers who work these additional shifts are provided compensation in addition to their normal wages.

The Governor’s Highway Safety Program also provides departments with e-citation equipment such as, computers and printers. The program also works with each department to help provide funding for equipment that can be utilized by departments for the betterment of the highways.

The Governor’s Highway Safety Program’s Child Seat Safety Program provides members of the community who qualify for child safety seats, and also properly installs each the seat. Members of the Region 5 office, the Clarksburg Police Department, and other area departments are trained in the installation of the safety seats, and can install those seats for community members.

The Region 5 Governor’s Highway Safety Program is under the direction of coordinator Pat McCarty. McCarty and others from the Region 5 office host a banquet with all departments in the region who are involved with the Governor’s Highway Safety Program to discuss general problems that will be faced in the future. Citizens and police departments are always able to contact the Region 5 office with concerns.

McCarty, who is retired law enforcement, brings a vast amount of knowledge to the Region 5 Program, which in turn provides better formed solutions to various highway safety concerns. The Region 5 office has been located in the Central Business District of Clarksburg for over 15 years.
