Vermont Sheriff Gets Education Grant for Young Drivers
The Caledonia County Sheriff's Department and St. Johnsbury Police Department are going to teach young Vermont drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.
The departments have been awarded an educational grant through Vermont Governor's Highway Safety Program and The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Over the next year, the two departments will develop and carry out a distracted driver program in Caledonia County high schools.
Police say that between January 2010 and June 1, 2012, there have been a number of traffic accidents in Caledonia County caused by distracted driving.
The Caledonian Record reports the sheriff's department has purchased two golf carts that will be used as part of the program at the Lyndon Institute and St. Johnsbury Academy.
