The Driven to Protect team had the honor of attending the 2019 Virginia Highway Safety Summit in Roanoke, Virginia.
The event served as an opportunity to inform Highway safety leaders, transportation professionals, DUI Enforcement Officers, and Traffic safety advocates about the latest DADSS work in Virginia. They were also able to participate in demonstrations of the technology, interact with prototype sensors, and see how the VA DMV is participating in Driven to Protect Program initiatives.
While at the conference, local news stations WSET and WFXR had the chance to interview George Bishop, Deputy Commissioner of the Virginia DMV, and Stephen Story, President of James River Transportation—who also received an award for their role in Driven to Protect.
