In 1991, Concerned Citizens Advocating Traffic Safety (CCATS) instituted the JOHN T. HANNA AWARDS. Named after Virginia’s “Father of Transportation Safety” these awards honor those who share John T. Hanna’s tireless dedication and commitment to improving traffic safety on Virginia's highways.
Mr. Hanna had an unparalleled zeal for safety that hallmarked his career and he still is an inspiration to every parent, police officer, judge, teacher, and citizen who is committed to saving lives through traffic safety.
Many people and organizations in Hampton Roads are doing tremendous work in the fight to reduce death and injury on our highways. You are invited to submit nominations to recognize outstanding traffic safety advocates - The JOHN T. HANNA Awards: Recognizing Traffic Safety Excellence in Hampton Roads
Please help us recognize noteworthy individuals and organizations by nominating them for the Annual JOHN T. HANNA AWARDS.
