Kentucky State Police say July 4th is the second-most deadly holiday after New Year's.
It's one reason why troopers will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the region.
KSP says it will focus on intoxicated drivers, speeding, and enforcing seatbelt laws.
Troopers will also cite motorists who fail to move to the left lane when passing vehicles in the right-hand emergency lane.
Checkpoints will be set up throughout the viewing area including Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Simpson, and Warren counties.
