Did state police drop coverage of accidents on ‘country roads?’
At some time back (don’t know when), the state of Virginia decided the State police would not cover or help people involved in an accident on “country roads.”
Don’t know what country roads mean, maybe secondary or rural or maybe it’s the number of houses in a mile. I understand the training they receive is extensive including determining the cause of an accident.
AS I understand this has been turned over to local police or sheriffs. Most I know have only had a minimum of training before being put on the road.
I would like to know when this took place, who made the decision and do they have a guideline as to what roads are included?
Also does the degree of seriousness help decide which police force responds?
