Lakeway Municipal Court earns traffic safety award

The Lakeway Municipal Court was awarded one of 18 traffic safety awards from the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center and the Texas Department of Transportation, the fourth award the Lakeway court has received since 2008.

TMCEC recognized Lakeway Municipal Court for its contributions in promoting and increasing traffic safety in the Lakeway community.

Lakeway Municipal Court will be among those honored at the TMCEC Traffic Safety Conference on April 2–4 at the Omni Southpark Hotel in Austin. Award recipients are to host breakout sessions at the conference in order for similarly sized courts to learn about the safety initiatives implemented by the winners.

Many of the programs created by Lakeway Municipal Court are in use by other courts throughout Texas, such as creating public safety slideshows that are played in the courtroom and lobby of the court or creating a bumper sticker including the court's telephone number to report unsafe driving of teen defendants who are currently on probation for traffic offenses.
