KSP-DUI Enforcement Campaign
Date of News Release: 08/12/2008
(Madisonville, KY.) - Beginning August 15, 2008 and continuing through September 1, 2008, the Kentucky State Police along with law enforcement agencies from across the Commonwealth will be conducting an impaired driving enforcement campaign, Drunk Driving: Over the Limit-Under Arrest. This nationwide initiative is a concerted effort by all law enforcement agencies to reduce alcohol-related injury and fatality crashes.
During this campaign, the Madisonville Kentucky State Police Post will conduct numerous traffic safety check points in the Post 2 District. Also, state and local officers will be out in full force conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols throughout the Post 2 District. Patrols will be increased in high volume traffic areas and high crash locations. Impaired drivers will be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The Kentucky State Police advise everyone to plan ahead; however, if you find it hard to figure out if you've had too many drinks to drive-don't risk it. Most likely if you're feeling "buzzed" you are impaired and if you drive law enforcement will catch you.
The Kentucky State Police remind everyone:
Citizens can assist troopers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-5555 (in the state of Kentucky only, does not work out of state) to report impaired drivers or any type of driving infractions. Just provide the direction of travel, a description of the vehicle, and the license plate number if possible.
*For traffic safety checkpoint locations in your area, you may refer to the web site: www.kentuckystatepolice.org/posts/press/post2_checkpoints.htm.
Post 2 serves the following counties: Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Todd, and Webster.
