KENTUCKY (11/16/12) – Beginning today, Friday, November 16th , officers with the Kentucky State Police (KSP) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division will be conducting saturated patrols in high crash corridors throughout the area.
This enforcement blitz will be conducted in an effort to decrease the number of traffic fatalities and collisions on Kentucky highways during the holiday season. These officers will be targeting any driving infractions occurring on roadways that have a history of high CMV collisions. More specifically, officers will be observing for hazardous traffic violations of CMV operators, as well as those of other drivers in vehicles operating in close proximity to these commercial vehicles. This concentrated effort will continue through December 1st.
CVE encourages the motoring public to always be aware of their driving behaviors. Anyone can report unsafe drivers to the Kentucky State Police at their toll free number (1-800-222-5555). Callers may remain anonymous but should try to give a detailed description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel, and license number (with state identification) if possible.
Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Region 1 serves the following counties: Ballard, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Livingston, Lyon, McCracken, Marshall, Trigg, Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Todd, Webster, Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio, and Union.
