Traffic Safety Thursday with Frederick County Sheriff Lenny Millholland & Lt. Warren Gosnell

We were NOT live in the studio for our “Traffic Safety Thursday” conversation. Instead, we recorded in advance at the Frederick County Public Safety Building with Frederick County Sheriff Lenny Millholland and Lt. Warren Gosnell.

We talked about reactionary gaps: why you should keep one and how to determine how far is far enough. Lt. Gosnell explained their particular importance when approaching construction zones when lanes may be closing as well as following bad weather events when snow might be piled up along roadways.

We also discussed illegal parking in handicapped spaces (including the lines that separate them) as well as parking in fire lanes. Finally, we discussed (again) why it’s illegal to have a cell phone or any other electronic device in your hand while actively operating a motor vehicle.

Public Safety Thursday

Lt. Warren Gosnell from Frederick County Sheriff’s Office returned from his 90-day hiatus for a LIVE edition of Traffic/Public Safety Thursday.

He gave us a quick overview of his campaign experience and talked about meeting so many of our community and the various questions they asked of him. Based on those questions & conversations, we talked about “red flag” laws. He explained how they work, the circumstances in which they’d be applied, and how enforcement only happens after the legal process has played out.

We also talked briefly about driving under the influence as it relates to not just the pandemic but the legalization of marijuana in Virginia.
