ST. JOHNSBURY — State police say they will be teaming up with local and county law enforcement in Caledonia County to conduct sobriety and safety enforcement.

The detail is set for late November through early December, police say.

Nearly 40 fatalities from automobile crashes statewide have taken place throughout Vermont as of November 19.

“The scheduled program is an opportunity to use high visibility enforcement to reduce the number of crashes and fatalities statewide,” Sergeant David Roos said in a release.

Police say in addition to the checkpoints, they will also be aggressively patrolling and enforcing motor vehicle laws concerning impaired, distracted, or aggressive driving, as well as speeding and seatbelt use in high traffic and high crash areas.
