Governor's Highway Safety - Thanksgiving Patrols

This Thanksgiving the Royalton Police Department will be once again participating in increased patrols funded through the Governor's Highway Safety Program.  The Royalton Police Department would like to remind everyone to wear their seat belt, and drive sober. 

According to statistics from the Vermont Agency of Transportation, there have already been 70 deaths on Vermont highways in 2022. The leading causes of fatal crashes this year are impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving, and lack of seat belts. Out of the 42 deaths involving motor vehicle occupants, 70 percent of them were not wearing seatbelts.

We wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
