AL Gov. Bentley working to make roads safer

(WTVM) - Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is working to make the state's roads safer.

The governor has awarded $800,000 to the Department of Public Safety.

The money will help pay for more state troopers at locations with a high number of accidents and traffic violations.

The governor says more troopers on the roads will hopefully deter drivers from breaking traffic laws.
