KSP Announces R.A.I.D. Campaign for Holidays

ksp trafficKENTUCKY (11/13/12) – The Kentucky State Police (KSP) has begun a six-month fall/winter, holiday and New Year enforcement campaign entitled “Operation R.A.I.D.” (Remove Aggressive, Impaired and Distracted Drivers from Kentucky Roadways). This campaign will conclude on Tuesday, April 30, 2013.
 
This time of year is typically when more travelers take to the roadways due to the holiday seasons. With this in mind, there are greater chances of encountering persons exhibiting these types of driving behaviors. This high visibility campaign will focus enforcement efforts toward aggressive, impaired and distracted driving behavior, in order to save lives by reducing the number of fatal and incapacitating crashes, across the Commonwealth.

Saturation patrols and traffic safety checkpoints will be utilized in an effort to enhance driver awareness. Patrols will be increased in high-volume traffic areas and high-crash locations. For traffic safety checkpoint locations in your area, you may refer to the web site: www.kentuckystatepolice.org/posts/press/post1_checkpoints.htm
 
KSP encourages the motoring public to always be aware of their driving behaviors. Anyone can report unsafe drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free, in Kentucky, at 1-800-222-5555. Callers may remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel, and license number and state if possible.
