Zero Fatalities During "Staying Alive on 75"

Date of News Release: 04/03/2014

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) #stayingaliveon75 – The Kentucky State Police announced today that there were no fatalities on Interstate 75 in Kentucky last weekend, capping off a successful detail called "Staying Alive on 75."

"Working with our partners in other states and sharing a common mission resulted in a positive outcome—zero fatalities on I-75," said Lt. Col. Jack Miniard, director of the KSP Operations Division. "Traffic enforcement in today's society is ever changing. Moving forward, we will see more partnerships like this between law enforcement agencies to provide a more effective traffic safety plan."

During the three-day operation, state and local law enforcement agencies along the six state I-75 corridor teamed up as part of a national effort by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to reduce traffic fatalities in the United States by 15 percent overall in 2014. Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky joined forces to focus on dangerous driving behaviors and promote safety.

KSP reminds motorists that safe travel begins with them:

The states will participate in three additional "Staying Alive on 75" weekends in the coming months.
