A new state law that mitigates the length of time a resident is without a driver’s license as a result of a drunk driving violation addresses a crucial concern: limiting the ability of that person to maintain his or her job and, in many cases, to provide an income for the families involved.
This is a classic case in which the imposition of a law to correct one social behavior has caused hardships that were not thoroughly considered.

ADDISON COUNTY — Throughout Addison County, residents might notice a blue Toyota Prius with the license plate “PLUG IN.” That’s the new plug-in hybrid vehicle that the Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) is using to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, cut costs and, planners hope, help drive Vermont into the future.
