News Release

Click It or Ticket and Memorial Day Holiday Enforcement

Date of News Release: 05/16/2014

Madisonville, KY - Beginning Monday, May 19 and continuing through Sunday, June 1, 2014, the Kentucky State Police will be participating in the "Click It or Ticket" national, seatbelt enforcement campaign. This federal highway safety initiative focuses on seatbelt and child restraint enforcement as well as driver education.

The Memorial Day weekend begins at 6 p.m. Friday, May 23 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 26. This traditionally marks the beginning of the summer driving season. The KSP expects a significant increase in traffic on the state's roadways.

Statewide in 2013, during the 4-day Memorial Holiday weekend, seven people were killed on Kentucky's roadways. During that same period in the Post 2 District, there were no fatalities reported.

This campaign's two-week duration will be highlighted by troopers aggressively targeting those people who choose not to wear seatbelts or use child safety restraints.

Throughout the Post 2 District, troopers will conduct saturation patrols in high-traffic areas and high-crash locations in which intensified speed and impaired driving enforcement will take place.

KSP will be partnering with local law enforcement agencies to conduct traffic safety checkpoints in the Post 2 District. The KSP utilizes traffic safety checkpoints to promote safety for motorists and to provide a deterrent for those who violate laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes. For traffic safety checkpoint locations in your area, please refer to the web site: www.kentuckystatepolice.org/posts/press/post2_checkpoints.htm.

Citizens can assist by calling toll-free, in Kentucky, 1-800-222-5555 to report any type of unsafe driving behaviors. Callers should provide the direction of travel, a description of the vehicle, and the license plate number if possible.

The Post 2 District serves the following counties: Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Todd and Webster.
