DUI patrols active for holidays

ADDISON COUNTY — Five Addison County law enforcement agencies — Vergennes Police Department, Vermont State Police, Addison County Sheriff’s Department, Bristol Police Department and Middlebury Police Department — will be conducting an impaired driving checkpoint and DUI (driving under the influence) patrols throughout the county through the holiday season.
“If you must drive, please do so safely and ensure that you and your passengers wear your seatbelts,” Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel said in a press release. “If you choose to drink, please do so responsibly and/or make use of a designated driver. A DUI conviction is nothing anyone can afford.”
Merkel pointed out that besides the financial cost, the personal impact of causing injury or death due to impaired driving is even higher.
