West Virginia Taking Applications for Holiday Safety Breaks

Interstate 68/79
West Virginia Humanities Council

The West Virginia Division of Highways is encouraging groups to apply to host holiday safety breaks at rest areas and welcome centers.

The program is intended to encourage drivers to take a break while traveling.

The agency says permission is granted only to civic nonprofit organizations with an identifiable safety program targeting transportation, or to groups that participate in the Adopt-A-Highway Program.

Fundraising groups and organizations sponsoring festivals, fairs and recreational activities aren't allowed to host safety breaks.

Permission will be granted during the holidays of New Year's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, Father's Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day and the first day of Buck Gun Season.

An application and more information are available here.
