With good old Turkey Day, Thanksgiving, coming up just this Thursday, Vermont State Police are stepping up patrols for holiday safety. In a press release, Vermont State Police have announced that they are participating in the national Click it or Ticket campaign and Operation CARE which stands for Combined Accident Reduction Effort, both taking place over the holiday from November 25th through the 29th.
Click it or Ticket is a national campaign that promotes and enforces seat belt use among young drivers in the country and has been around since roughly 1993.
Meanwhile, Operation CARE was started in 1977 and is likewise a national campaign that is a combined effort to lower the three causes of traffic fatalities: speeding, impaired driving, and failure to use occupant restraints.
State police in both states as well as us here at YCN take this opportunity to remind you to please be safe when driving over the holidays.
