hopkinsville police lights 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (7/23/13) – The Hopkinsville Police Department has expressed that they would like to solicit cooperation from the citizens of Hopkinsville to assist in reduction of collisions on our city streets.

The Intersections of East 9th and Main, Skyline and Ft. Campbell Blvd and West 7th and North Drive have become the most common places for collisions and will be the focus of attention by officers of the Hopkinsville Police Department in the weeks to follow.

Officers would like to offer these tips to avoid collisions while traveling these city streets…

When turning onto a street that has more than one lane for same-way traffic, the motorist should turn into the lane closest to them before changing into any other lane.

Motorists should allow more breaking distance between vehicles and pay extra attention to other vehicles when nearing these intersections.

Motorists are encouraged to refrain from cellular phone usage, particularly when traveling in these high-collision areas.

Officers will be targeting these areas as well as the contributing factors.
