Kingdom Police Address Distracted Young Drivers

09/17/12 6:06AM

The Caledonia County Sheriff's Department and St. Johnsbury Police Department are going to teach young Vermont drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.

The departments have been awarded an educational grant through the Vermont Governor's Highway Safety Program and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Over the next year, the two departments will develop and carry out a distracted driver program in Caledonia County high schools.

The Caledonian Record reports the sheriff's department has purchased two golf carts that will be used as part of the program at Lyndon Institute and St. Johnsbury Academy.
