SAN ANTONIO (September 19, 2022) – This September, the San Antonio Municipal Court received its fourth Texas Municipal Traffic Safety Initiatives (MTSI) Traffic Safety Award since 2019 from the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center (TMCEC). Presiding Judge Carla Obledo along with Municipal Court Clerk Fred Garcia traveled to Austin, Texas to accept the award on behalf of the Court.

This award recognizes those municipal courts that have demonstrated outstanding contributions to increasing traffic safety. Ned Minevitz, Program Attorney & Senior TxDot Grant Administrator, stated during the ceremony that "as municipal courts, we are the frontline in promoting traffic safety."

This past year, the San Antonio Municipal Court implemented its Drive SAfely SA initiative to deepen its commitment to public safety in our community. This year-round initiative promotes safe driving behaviors to reduce preventable deaths and injuries on San Antonio roads through community outreach and education. Under this initiative, the Court has successfully launched the San Antonio Road Ready docket, the Distracted Driving Awareness campaign, the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer campaign, and distributed back-to-school safety tips.
