Holiday Travel

When residents began their drive Friday afternoon, they also had a new law to obey.

When someone is pulled off in the emergency lane, motorists must move to the far left lane (as long as it’s clear) away from the vehicle.

This is because too many officers and innocent people have been seriously injured or killed while helping motorists.

Kentucky State Police Trooper, Todd Holder, says he’s had many close calls.

“I’ve climbed on the hoods of cars, hugged the cars because when they watch you they start driving towards you.”

With millions of motorists hitting the roads this holiday weekend, Holder says it’s important to be prepared for every type of emergency.

He says if you’re heading out of town; take lots of water with you, a can of fix-a-flat and a cell phone for emergencies.

To help keep you safe, the Kentucky State Police will be conducting checkpoints throughout the entire Post 3 District for this July 4 holiday season. Here’s a list of where they’ll be:
