KSP Encourages Motorists to Drive Safe during Holidays

Date of News Release: 12/22/2011

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) -- KSP is once again participating in the national holiday enforcement campaign, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over." State troopers will join local law enforcement agencies across the state to encourage safe driving habits and remove impaired drivers from Kentucky roadways this holiday season.

The 2011 Christmas holiday period begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, and runs through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 26. Last year, during the Christmas holiday, there were 1,242 crashes resulting in 295 injuries and one death.

"This is the time of year when many people are traveling to share the holiday with family and friends," KSP Spokesman Capt. David Jude said. "Our goal is for motorists to reach their destinations safely. We take this responsibility seriously throughout the year, and especially during holiday season."

Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
