HENDERSON, Ky. — The Kentucky State Police offers periodic reminders to drivers who travel Kentucky roadways. The KSP strives daily to ensure the safety of the motoring public. Some of these proactive measures include various roadside safety checkpoints and saturating known problematic areas in the district through general patrol tactics.
The KSP utilizes traffic safety checkpoints to promote safety for motorists using the public roadways and to provide a deterrent for those who violate laws contained in the Kentucky Revised Statutes.
The intent of a traffic safety checkpoint is to provide for high visibility, public safety service, focusing on operator impairment, vehicular equipment deficiencies, confirming appropriate registration and insurance of vehicles and the valid licensing of drivers. Other violations of law or other public safety issues arising will be addressed.
These checkpoints will allow the KSP the opportunity to periodically concentrate its efforts in checking for violations of Kentucky traffic and regulatory laws that will ultimately increase the safety of the citizens within the Commonwealth.
