MOUNT VERNON — A pilot program geared toward reducing speeding in school zones, off-route trucks, and other traffic issues in Mount Vernon is getting positive results since its inception six months ago.

The program calls for a dedicated officer — Ptl. Justin Trowbridge — who primarily handles traffic complaints, accidents, and other violations. An initial three-month trial begun in May stretched to six months.
