KY State Police Working To Keep Fatalities Down
Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Paul Blanton says highway fatalities this year are the lowest since 1947.
By last week, the state had 628 traffic deaths, 15% less than last year.
Police are hoping people out during the New Year's holiday can help keep the number down. Blanton says police will be arresting anyone caught driving impaired.
The holiday enforcement period starts at 6 p.m. Monday and continues through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday. In Kentucky, impaired or erratic drivers can be reported by calling (800) 222-5555.
Highway safety officials also recently unveiled a new app that lists taxi and limo services and allows users to report drunken drivers.
