Kentucky State Police and area Sheriff's Departments are kicking their patrol into high gear. Officers will be conducting a series of traffic control checkpoints, speed enforcement operations, and sobriety checkpoints along US 31-W from the Kentucky-Tennessee line, to the Barren-Hart County line.
The Enforcement Blitz will run from December 13th until December 18th.
Holiday travel is expected to be up this season, the highest since pre-September 11th. Police encourage motorists to keep your speed to a minimum, avoid using cell phones while driving, and maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front of you.
