Happy Good Friday: Handcuffs Across The Borders Enforcement


2013 Operation Traffic Safety without Borders

Lt. Michael Macarilla, Traffic Safety Operations Commander – Williston Barracks, 802-872-4048
Captain Robert Evans, Assistant Field Force Commander – Headquarters, 802-244-8775

St. Albans, VT – 3/28/2011 – On March 29, 2013, the Sûreté du Québec (Quebec Provincial Police), Vermont and New York State Police, Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles, and US Border Patrol will participate in a joint traffic enforcement initiative “Operation Traffic Safety without Borders”.  This operation will begin on Good Friday; kicking off Easter weekend in anticipation of increased traffic for both inbound and outbound travelers between Vermont and Quebec.

The initiative will take place on Friday, March 29 between 10AM and 6PM. The area will consist of border areas in Franklin, Grand Isle, and Orleans counties, with an emphasis on major corridors, such as Interstate 89 and 91, US Routes 7 and 2, and Vermont Route 105; as these areas have the highest volume and concentration of international traffic.

“High visibility aggressive traffic enforcement can influence driving behavior and reduce traffic crashes and detect criminal activity,” said Captain Robert Evans, Assistant Field Force Commander. “The Vermont State Police look forward to working with our neighboring law enforcement agencies during this initiative.”

    Did you seriously write “Happy Good Friday” ??? Do you have the vaguest idea of what Good Friday symbolizes? There is nothing happy about it, nor should it be mocked. Your lapse in judgment (once again) is astonishing.

    I refer above to your John Ruggeri interview wherein you sensationalized your readers by including IN ALL CAPS your hurtful gossip share by printing ….word on the street….do not eat at Bentley’s. Only weeks earlier you lamented taking friends to Bentley’s but their signature nachos were not available.

    Lastly, before I close, you found humor while “reporting” that a certain guy was clocked and stopped for driving over 100mph on the interstate. Is the fact that he has a famous brother what made it humerous to you? I found it dangerous and a reckless disregard for the safety of others on the road.

    Suffice it to say, after your mean spirited “quote”/gossipy posting about Bentley’s, I hope you don’t call yourself a friend of David and Bill, or a fan of Bentley’s going forward. Just as with “happy Good Friday: do your homework before hitting “send”.

    Ms. Caruso,
    Get a sense of humor. I have seen in the past that you have been happy to post info that meets your criteria of what is “right”. Don’t call WEB mean spirited when they don’t agree with you.

    I think was some people forget, is that this is a blog, Julia’s blog, not a newspaper.
