Kentucky State Police boosted its presence on the roadways this past weekend as part of Operation C.A.R.E. Lifesavers weekend.

Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) is a year-round program that has specific weekends where troopers aggressively enforce traffic laws.

The program began early Friday morning and ended late Sunday night.

The point of the program is to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities caused by speeding, impaired drivers, and failure to use seatbelts.

While law enforcement says the program is successful, they want to remind everyone to drive defensively, leave early, and always buckle up.

Although, the numbers have not been released on how many were ticketed during Operation C.A.R.E., police are hoping motorists think twice before breaking the law.
