The Thanksgiving Holiday is typically one of the busiest as well as one of the deadliest holidays of the year. In an effort to save lives and reduce injury-related crashes, the Kentucky State Police will be out in force beginning Wednesday, November 27 at 6 p.m. through Sunday, December 1 at 11:59 p.m.

 

Statewide, during the 2012 Thanksgiving Holiday period, there were 1,390 motor vehicle crashes on Kentucky roadways including seven fatalities. There was one fatality reported in the Post 3 District during the 2012 Thanksgiving Holiday period.

 

KSP Troopers and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement officers will concentrate their holiday enforcement efforts on high traffic areas such as interstates and parkways, along with high crash locations. They will be observing for individuals exhibiting unsafe driving behaviors, such as, speeding, reckless driving, and driving impaired.

 

 

This enforcement period will be highlighted by troopers and officers aggressively targeting those people who choose not to wear seatbelts or use child safety restraints.
