Vermont police urge drivers to slow down


Vermont State Police are urging drivers to slow down in hazardous winter conditions after numerous vehicles have slid off of roads in southeastern Vermont over the last two days. Troopers are being encouraged to issue traffic tickets in these incidents to drivers who are driving too fast for conditions. The ticket fine is $214. Captain Ray Keefe — commander of the Vermont State Police in Royalton, Rockingham, and Brattleboro — said Monday that many of these incidents, often called slide-offs, can cause injuries to the driver and passengers and are an unnecessary drain on state and local resources.
