Some pertinent News you can use from the Norwich PD

2 items of interest to keep you in the know and oh yes legal too!

Good morning to all on this snowy and somewhat wintry looking day.

I would like to share these two announcements from the Norwich PD so that you stay safe and informed. One is the Winter parking regulations which went into effect on Nov 1 and stays that way until April 30 of next year, and the other is the legal spotlight on stop signs and yield signs. This is useful information in my opinion as it keeps you in the know and allows you to be on the go safely. Be safe out there


Legal Spotlight: 23 V.S.A. § 1048 -
Stop or yield intersections

Except when directed to proceed by an enforcement officer or traffic-control signal, every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop intersection indicated by a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection, or, if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering the intersection. After having stopped, the driver shall yield the right of way to any vehicle which has entered the intersection from another highway or which is approaching so closely on said highway as to constitute an immediate hazard during the time when such driver is moving across or within the intersection.
