AAA Honors Wilton police for traffic safety achievements

AAA Northeast recently honored the Wilton Police Department with a Silver Award for its traffic safety programs that include an active child passenger safety, drunk driving/distracted driving, and speed enforcement programs, and a junior health/freshman seminar on impaired driving, among other initiatives.

In addition, AAA honored Officer Anna Tornello for her community traffic safety efforts. In 2014, she targeted impaired and distracted drivers, making 12 DUI arrests and more than 326 motor vehicle stops targeting cellphone, speeding and seatbelt violations that place motorists in jeopardy.
