The Kentucky State Police are launching a nighttime holiday enforcement campaign designed to reduce traffic fatalities on Kentucky roadways. ‘Operation Holiday Lights: All Night. Every Night.’ Which is underway and lasts through January 1.

KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb says the statewide enforcement effort will utilize collision analysis data to determine which counties have the highest instance of injury and fatal crashes.

“Each post has been asked to identify the counties in their patrol area where crashes are prevalent,” says Webb.  “Specifically, they are looking at the time and exact location of those crashes and scheduling heavier patrols for those areas.”

All  KSP posts and commercial vehicle regions will utilize traffic safety check points, covert details in high traffic areas and night vision equipment to assist in the campaign.

 

“It is a credit to motorists who have made wise choices when driving by wearing seat belts, slowing down and refraining from distractions when behind the wheel,” says Webb.  “Ideally we would like to report ‘zero deaths’ on Kentucky roadways.”
