The Kentucky State Police and local law enforcement agencies are participating in the national campaign, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," which runs through Labor Day weekend with the goal of reducing deaths and injuries caused by motorists driving impaired, either by alcohol or drugs.
The 2019 enforcement period begins at 6 p.m. today and continues through Sept. 2 at 11:59 p.m.
KSP will be partnering with local law enforcement agencies to conduct traffic safety checkpoints in the Post 1 District.
Special attention will be placed on seat belt/child restraint usage, vehicle safety, insurance compliance, registration violations and speeding.
