Snowmobile Safety

Print More

During the winter months, snowmobile trails around the state
are full of the sounds of the sport…the whizzing motors, the blowing snow, and
skis carving through the path.  But this
year, the pastime has been particularly dangerous.  Six people have died while riding snowmobiles
in the past two months.  We discuss
safety rules, talk about how to ride safer, and hear why so many people enjoy
snowmobiling in Vermont.  Our guests include VAST Executive Director
Bryant Watson, and Sergeant J.R. Underhill with the State Police. Listen

Also, we look into a new law that went into effect in Vermont
on January 1st that restricts the use of lead in plumbing fixtures and a few
other industrial products. We learn more about the new restrictions with Elliot
Burg, an assistant attorney general who has worked extensively on lead issues
over the past several years. Listen

And, we sort through our mailbag, and share your comments.
