Safety Corridors


Working with the Vermont State Police, DMV Enforcement, local law enforcement, municipal partners and the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance, VTrans is establishing Safety Corridors throughout Vermont. In these corridors, a combination of high traffic volume, high speeds and a high rate of crashes demands an increased level of enforcement. Speeding, distracted and aggressive driving, impaired driving and seat belt use will all be the focus of this enhanced enforcement effort. The goal is to reduce the number of crashes and our leading indicator will be a lasting decrease in average speeds in each of the four pilot corridors.
