Highway Safety

Highway Safety

Out of town and out of state travelers take notice; the local sheriff/counstable is very strict on moving vehicle and speeding violations. He is a prolific ticket writer and is in an unmarked gray buick.

Just an FYI so you can enjoy your visit !

I was hit with a $199.00 ticket in Island Pont in September of 2007 . I was driving a car with a Pennsylvania license plate. The cop said I hesitated after going through a stop sign!Talk about a scam. Of course i paid since my choice was to come all the way back from Pensylvania to fight the ticket. I am glad that the good people of Island Pond have gotten rid of this Bozo.

I have found that certain towns in Vermont seem keener to apply the law with little sensitivity to folks who may be unfamiliar with local speed limits, than others. Whilst I support the principle of applying fines to those who commit offences, a little more gentle cautioning could I feel be more sensitive and effective.

It is good to see that the Island Pond residents voted on this matter, and I deduce agreed with this forum member, by removing this officer from duty!
