Vermont is a beautiful state. The scenery is spectacular when hiking or driving. So why go Vermonters drive aggressively??? Excessive speed, especially for the road conditions is out of control here in the beautiful state. If you frown at this statement, try this little test. For the next two weeks, drive no faster then 5mph over the POSTED SPEED LIMIT (WEATHER PERMITTING) and observe the string of vehicles in your rear view mirror grow.
A "bare roads policy" will not fix what is already broken ,just make it worse. Let's not fool ourselves. It is IMPOSSIBLE to have bare roads all the time and everywhere is the Northeast . The real culprits is aggressive SPEED and DISTRACTIONS!!
The road crew does a great job on all Vermont roads and I'am perfectly satisfied with the 'safe roads policy' The last thing we need is more CORROSIVE SALT and BRINE destroying everything including streams and lakes. So slow down and enjoy the view ......Tom

Vermonters drive aggressively to make up time because they get stuck behind slowpokes from Hyde Park, NY who view the state as a drive-thru nature preserve and not a place where folks actually have jobs and places to go.
