Kentucky State Police safety effort underway

Associated Press

FRANKFORT - Kentucky State Police posts around the state are involved in an effort to bring awareness to dangerous driving behaviors that cause crashes.

The program runs through Feb. 15 and is called Operation R.A.I.D., for "remove aggressive, impaired and distracted drivers from Kentucky roadways."

State police Director of Operations Lt. Col. Jack Miniard says the effort has the same objectives across the state but individual plans will take into account local crash activity. He says the focus is to reduce the loss of life on Kentucky highways.

The agency cites National Highway Traffic Safety Administration studies that show that aggressive drivers cause two-thirds of all fatal crashes and more than one-third of all crashes. The agency defines aggressive driving as someone committing a combination of traffic offenses that endanger others.
