Safety corridors are tools for traffic enforcement |

Perhaps you have heard about the safety corridors on our interstates. These safety corridors have been marked for an increased level of traffic enforcement because of heavy traffic volume, high rate of speed and a high rate of crashes. The fact is that cute slogans, sign boards and other warnings do not seem to be getting the attention of motorists. Now law enforcement agencies will be focusing on these areas specifically watching for speeding, aggressive and distracted driving and seat belt violations (among other things). Go to vtrans.vermont. gov/safetycorridors for maps and statistics that you may find interesting.

In the meantime, pay attention — that $150 to $200 you pay for a violation is probably better off in your pocket.
