KSP to conduct traffic safety checkpoints in several Heartland counties

KENTUCKY (KFVS) - Kentucky drivers are being reminded to follow the law.

The Kentucky State Police will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the Post 1 district, to check motorists for compliance with motor vehicle laws including driving under the influence statutes.

Traffic safety checkpoints 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.

When you come to a traffic safety checkpoint you will be asked to have your operator's license, vehicle registration receipt and proof of insurance readily accessible. Drivers with no violations of law and minimal roadway congestion can expect to be delayed for no more than 30 seconds to a few minutes.

Listed below are the supervisory- approved traffic safety checkpoint locations in the Kentucky State Police, Post 1 district. These locations can also be found at, www.kentuckystatepolice.org.
