Press Release Provided By Culpeper Police:

From May 23 to June 5, 2016, Virginia’s local law enforcement and Virginia State Police will participate in the national Click It or Ticket campaign in an effort to save lives through increased seat belt use. This enforcement period is in advance of and includes the Memorial Day holiday, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.

There were 310 unrestrained fatalities in Virginia last year, and 71 were recorded so far this year, between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2016. Nationally, 88.5 percent of passenger vehicle occupants buckled up last year, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but almost 50 percent of fatal crash occupants were not restrained. In some states, the rate was as high as 70 percent unrestrained in fatal crashes. “This fact gravely highlights the need for increased enforcement and awareness of seat belt use,” said Chief Chris Jenkins.

“Time after time, we see the deadly results that come from drivers and passengers refusing to wear a seat belt,” Jenkins said. “Wearing a seat belt is one of the most important steps in increasing survivability in a crash. Our job is to stop those who are not buckled up and to keep them from repeating this potentially deadly mistake.”

Virginia’s statewide seat belt use rate was 80.9 percent in 2015, 77.3 percent in 2014, 79.7 percent in 2013 and 78.4 percent in 2012. The 310 unrestrained fatalities in Virginia last year represent 41 percent of the 753 total traffic fatalities.

“The numbers tell us that young males, many of them drinking and driving, are the ones not wearing seat belts and are dying on our roadways,” said Chief Jenkins. “We want to do everything we can to reach these people and save their lives.”

According to NHTSA, there were 9,385 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2014 in the United States. Also in 2014, seat belts saved an estimated 12,802 people from dying nationwide. From 2010 to 2014 seat belts saved nearly 63,000 lives. If all passenger vehicle occupants age 5 and older involved in fatal crashes had worn their seat belts, an additional 2,814 lives could have been saved in 2014 alone.

Culpeper Police Officers will be conducting additional patrols during this campaign. Their goal is to enforce the traffic laws with a particular focus on occupant safety. The Culpeper Police Department asks everyone, “To buckle up and put the phone down while driving.”

SHARE Food Network Flyer June 2016

The June 2016 Menu for SHARE Food has been released.

This is a great way to save money on food – and you do not have to disclose income. You do not need to be receiving food stamps. The food is top-quality. If you are not taking advantage of this opportunity to get good food for little money, it is a crying shame!

Notes: The “Order Turn-In Date” is the Day that the Co-ordinators have to phone their order in. To ensure that you get your order in on time, please place your order the Day BEFORE! The “D” Dates are the dates that orders can be picked up in some (but not all) locations. The Culpeper/Fauquier areas only have “D” dates on Saturdays.

Notes: prices on this flyer do NOT include a surcharge for the Culpeper/Fauquier areas to offset the price of gasoline for the volunteer drivers who use their personal vehicles to drive to the warehouse to pick up the shipment to bring to the local host sites.

When you place your order, please check with the coordinator for the appropriate pick-up time for the location you will be using, and the actual surcharge.

There are three local distribution locations near the Jeffersonton VA area where area residents can pick up their food orders:
