ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York is embarking on a range of initiatives designed to promote highway safety after receiving $32 million in federal funds for the projects.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the grant on Thursday. The money comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is intended to make highways and roads safer for pedestrians, motorists and bicyclists alike.

More than 540 different programs will receive a portion of the funds. They include law enforcement initiatives to crack down on drunken driving and stepped-up seatbelt enforcement campaigns, along with child passenger seat outreach, car seat inspections and projects to improve railroad crossing safety.
