Hopkinsville Police Department to Conduct Traffic Safety Checkpoints

hopkinsvillepolice 300 aHOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (8/29/13) – During the upcoming Labor Day weekend, the Hopkinsville Police Department will be conducting DUI directed patrol throughout the city. Motorists are reminded to obey all traffic laws, not just this holiday weekend, but at all times.
 
Enforcement actions taken during these patrols will include, but not limited to, seatbelt and booster seat violations, licensing and registration violations, operating under the influence, open alcoholic beverage containers and drug-related offenses.
 
“Operating a motor vehicle under the influence is a public safety problem, and DUI directed patrols are a valuable tool in combating this major roadway danger,” said Officer Josh Fields. “These patrols will serve three major purposes; deterrence, removal of impaired drivers from the road and education of the driving public.”
 
In the year 2012, the Hopkinsville Police Department made 155 DUI arrests. Thirty of those arrests were the result of a traffic collision. Statistics show that 43% of DUI arrests in Hopkinsville occur between the hours of 10 PM and 2 AM. That’s the most-likely time period for an impaired driver to be on the street of Hopkinsville.
