There's a new Kentucky State Police campaign to improve safe driving across the state.

The agency said Thursday it has kicked off the six-month effort, which will continue through the fall and the holidays into the new year.

State police Director of Operations Lt. Col. Jack Miniard says the program will have the same objectives from post to post, but each one will have a different plan based on crash activity in the region. He says the campaign focus is on reducing the loss of life on highways and isn't about writing tickets.

The project is known as Operation R.A.I.D., for "Remove Aggressive, Impaired and Distracted" drivers from Kentucky roads.
