Kentucky State Police Seatbelt Crackdown
Boosted By Largest Federal Advertising Investment

(Campbellsburg, KY) - Troopers with the Kentucky State Police will be participating in the nationwide crackdown on those who violate seatbelt laws. The two-week enforcement wave, will run from May 24 through June 6. During this Buckle Up Kentucky enforcement period troopers will observe ZERO TOLERANCE for those found to be in violation of the seatbelt and child safety seat laws. Troopers will step up their enforcement efforts through the use of saturation patrols and traffic safety checkpoints in high crash locations.

The Campbellsburg Post of the Kentucky State Police invites everyone to visit our website to see a listing of traffic checkpoint locations in our post area http://www.kentuckystatepolice.org/posts/post5.htm then click on "Buckle Up Chuck".

All Kentucky State Police Troopers will operate their police vehicles with the headlights illuminated throughout the campaign as an added safety measure and to show support for our military personnel. The public is encouraged to operate their vehicles with the headlights illuminated as well.

The enforcement period begins at midnight on Monday, May 24, 2004 and continues through midnight on Sunday, June 6, 2004.

I would like to invite any member of the media who wishes to ride with an officer or visit a traffic checkpoint during this enforcement period to contact me ASAP so that arrangements can be made.
