Traffic Problems at Fueling Locations
Date of News Release: 01/29/2009
(Hickory, KY) - Kentucky State Police are beginning to experience severe traffic congestion in areas where gasoline has become available. As fuel pumps become operational, vehicle traffic is backing up and in many cases blocking all lanes. Kentucky State Police is reminding motorists that they CANNOT restrict traffic flow on any roadway while waiting for fuel. This creates substantial obstacles for emergency vehicles and equipment trying to travel through certain areas. As more fueling locations re-open this problem should subside.
