Post 10 Harlan Activity for 8/10-8/16/09
Date of News Release: 08/17/09
(Harlan Ky.) -- From August 10th - August 16th , 2009 Kentucky State Police Post 10 Harlan Troopers made 10 DUI arrests, wrote 321 citations, 17 seatbelt citations, 111 citations for speeding, 34 criminal arrests and answered 279 complaints. Every 40 minutes and nearly 40 times a day, someone in the United States dies in an alcohol-impaired traffic crash according to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That is why Kentucky State Police along with other highway safety, community health and law enforcement officials are reminding everyone that Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving and to designate a sober driver.
Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555 (in the state of Kentucky only, does not work out of state). Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
