Cross-border enforcement kicks off ‘100 deadliest days of summer’

On May 24 between 4-8 p.m., law enforcement personnel from the Vermont State Police, New York State Police, Rutland County Sheriff’s Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Fair Haven Police Department, Castleton Police Department and Granville Police Department, conducted a cross-border motor vehicle enforcement detail, along the Vermont and New York border. 

The purpose of this detail was to promote safe and sober operation as we enter the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which is often referred to as the 100 deadliest days of summer. 

During this detail 71 motor vehicle citations were issued, most of which were for speeding violations.  Law enforcement agencies from Vermont and New York would like to remind motorists to drive “safe and sober” this holiday weekend and throughout the upcoming summer months.
