Driver Restoration Day Press ConferenceOn February 24th, I attended a press conference with Peter Shumlin, Chittenden County State’s Attorney TJ Donovan and others to announce a pilot Driver Restoration Day to be held in Burlington on March 20th to help Vermonters in Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, and Washington counties who have had their licenses suspended for failure to pay traffic tickets get their driving privileges reinstated.

From the press release:

The Governor noted that this pilot complements important legislation from the past two legislative sessions, spearheaded in part by Representative Maxine Grad following the work of the Non-Violent Misdemeanor Study Committee, which allows eligible Vermonters with suspended licenses to work out agreements through Court Diversion to allow for either a reduction in fines, or community service in exchange for a reduction in fines.

The full press release is available on Governor Shumlin’s website.

Other media coverage includes articles from the Burlington Free Press and VTDigger.org.

Transportation from Washington County via bus will be available; contact the Chittenden County State’s Attorney office at 802-863-2865 for information.
