KY State Police Up Visibility Over Holiday Weekend
Mayfield, KY – Kentucky state police are planning to increase their presence on the roads during the upcoming holiday weekend. Commissioner Rodney Brewer says the bulk of state troopers will be assigned to traffic patrol beginning at 6 tonight and continuing through late Monday night.
Their efforts are part of a national anti-drunk driving campaign. Troopers will be ticketing speeders, enforcing the state's seat belt law and looking to arrest impaired motorists. Brewer says troopers will be conducting saturation patrols and checkpoints throughout the state.
