FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Highway Safety Director Bill Bell says law enforcement officers will be working with his office to clamp down on traffic violations this month in a project called "Blue Lights Across the Bluegrass."

The number of traffic fatalities in Kentucky has been dropping, but the Transportation Cabinet says there was a spike in June compared with the previous year. The number for the year to date, however, is still below this time in 2012 — 310 for the first six months of this year, which is 62 fewer than the same time period a year ago.

The cabinet says officers will patrol all roadways in their area with special emphasis on the locations where most of the crashes have happened.
