ksp checkpoint 300HENDERSON, Ky. (8/2/19) — Kentucky State Police Post 16 reminds drivers of its proactive patrol for safety efforts.

The agency offers periodic reminders to drivers who travel roads, Post 16 Spokesman Trooper Corey King reports, which strives daily to ensure the safety of the motoring public.

"Some of these proactive measures include various roadside safety checkpoints and saturating known problematic areas in the district through general patrol tactics," King stated.

KSP utilizes traffic safety checkpoints to promote safety for motorists using the public roadways and to provide a deterrent for those who violate laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes, King explained. The intent of a traffic safety checkpoint is to provide for a high visibility, public safety service, focusing on operator impairment, vehicular equipment deficiencies (confirming appropriate registration and insurance of vehicles) and the valid licensing of drivers. Other violations of law and/or other public safety issues that arise will be addressed.

King said checkpoints allow KSP the opportunity to periodically concentrate its efforts in checking for violations of Kentucky traffic and regulatory laws that will ultimately increase the safety of the citizens within the commonwealth.

Post 16 serves Henderson, Daviess, Union, McLean, Ohio and Hancock counties.
