"F. Included in this appropriation is $147,414 in the second year from Commonwealth Transportation Funds to establish a motorist assistance unit in the Roanoke Interstate 81 and Interstate 581 area."

(This amendment provides funding to establish a motorist assistance unit in the Roanoke area. Included in this amendment is funding for the salary and benefits for two full-time and two wage positions plus related supplies and equipment. The Motorist Assistance Program uses civilian personnel to assist motorists during peak traffic periods and to expedite the removal of disabled and unattended vehicles from the highway. The use of civilian personnel for these purposes frees troopers to perform law enforcement duties and crash investigation.)
