Eyewitness News, Vanderburgh Sheriff Partnering to Award Good Drivers

Local News

Eyewitness News will be partnering with the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office during the Safe Family Travel Campaign by looking for good drivers.

Weekly during Daybreak on Eyewitness News, we will ride with Sheriff Dave Wedding as he scopes out a driver who is driving safely – working to keep themselves and others safe on the road.

Sheriff Wedding says he’ll follow the driver to their destination and award them with a Lucas Oil Gift Card.

“We’re hoping that we can reduce the number of times that we’re responding to a crash because people are taking a moment to drive a little slower, being more courteous, looking ahead, keeping everyone buckled up, and reducing their speed and even watching their distracted driving by getting off their phones while driving,” says Sheriff Wedding.

You’ll never know when Eyewitness News and Sheriff Wedding will be out so keep an eye on your rear view mirror and watch out for the sheriff.
