Vermont has “Safe Roads at Safe Speeds” policy!
This includes Fairfield
We have ”Safe roads at Safe speeds” policy during the winter months and not a bare roads policy!
The Vermont Safe Speeds Safe Roads Policy :
Know before you go! Check the weather forecast and plan accordingly. Leave yourself enough time to get to your destination with out rushing. Dial 511 for weather and travel information, or log on to www.511VT.gov
Slow down! Drive according to the road conditions. Driving too fast is the leading cause of winter crashes!
Distance: Leaving more room between the car in front of you than you usually do also gives you more of a chance to brake more carefully and turn safely!
Braking on snow: You will need more time and distance to brake safely. Quick braking leads to skidding and can result in accidents.
Control: Do no use Cruise Control during storms. Four wheel drive and all wheel drive are not a guarantee that you won’t skid off of the road. And remember Black Ice usually appears as bare road.
Vision and Focus: Pay attention to the road and drivers in front of you!
Following the key elements of Safe roads at Safe Speeds policy and proper seasonal equipment will help ensure that we all have a safe driving experience!
As Always Buckle Up and Don’t Text and Drive!
