Kentucky State Police, Post 3
November 22, 2006
TFC Todd Holder, PAO
The Kentucky State Police will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the entire Post 3 District for the Thanksgiving Holiday period. Troopers will be checking for traffic and equipment violations, as well as drivers under the influence of intoxicants.
Over 80 percent of the United States population will travel on Thanksgiving Day or the day prior, whether they are on a long distance trip, or just down the road to a relatives home. Since so many motorists will be on our highways, the Kentucky State Police will focus on intoxicated drivers, occupants not seatbelted as well as speeding motorists. The Kentucky State Police would like to remind all motorists traveling this holiday season to slow down and buckle up, every time, every trip, even if it’s just down the road to grandma’s house.
The Kentucky State Police will utilize the following areas listed below. Troopers will also be citing motorist on limited access highways such as I-65 and the Louie B. Nunn, William H. Natcher Parkways, for failing to move over to the far left lane, when emergency vehicles have pulled to the emergency lane with another vehicle.
