“We’re putting the locations on our website. We’re talking about them publicly because we want this to be a topic of conversation for all people,” Vance told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

Vance says virtually every state highway, parkway, and even some secondary roads will be covered by more than the usual number of troopers.
