KSP announces safety checkpoint locations

KENTUCKY (KFVS) -

Kentucky State Police are announcing their traffic safety checkpoints in the Post 1 area.

They will be stopping traffic to check for compliance with motor vehicle laws. According to a release, the intent of the traffic safety checkpoint is to "provide for a high visibility, public safety service, focusing on vehicular equipment deficiencies, confirming appropriate registration and insurance of vehicles, and the valid licensing of drivers."

They will also be looking for drunk or otherwise impaired drivers. They expect each car to be stopped for about 30 seconds for the driver to show proof of insurance, driver's license, and registration.
