State promoting highway safety with new strategy


State transportation and public safety officials say they have a plan to keep people safe on the state’s roadways. The Vermont Highway Safety Alliance will work to implement a system that employs education, enforcement, engineering, and emergency services. In Monday’s announcement, officials also marked the launch of ‘‘Operation Safe Summer.’’ The alliance is going to focus on reducing major crashes. Some of the things that will be emphasized include a continued push to reduce impaired driving, but also increase seat belt use and remind all drivers of the dangers of distracted driving, such as texting or talking on a cellphone.
