Motorists in Kentucky will see increased patrols beginning Wednesday, July 3, as troopers prepare for a busy Independence Day holiday travel weekend.
As part of the ‘Blue Lights Across the Bluegrass’ safe driving campaign, Kentucky State Police troopers will be maximizing their efforts to save lives by arresting impaired drivers, ticketing speeders and enforcing the seat belt law.
“With this increased enforcement effort, KSP troopers will be conducting saturation patrols and safety checkpoints across the state,” KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer said.
“You’ll see more troopers on the road and enforcement will be stringent,” he adds. “Impaired drivers will be arrested and motorists exceeding posted speed limits or not using seat belts will be ticketed.”
Citizens can help save lives by reporting impaired, erratic or speeding drivers to the KSP toll-free hotline at 1-800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should provide a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
