Mayfield, Ky. (KFVS) - With the holiday season approaching, Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 1 is preparing for the anticipated increase in traffic volume.

Troopers will be increasing traffic enforcement efforts, with a focus on highly traveled roadways, such as interstates and highways.

According KSP, as of Wednesday, November 3, there have been 660 fatalities as a result of crashes on Kentucky roadways in 2021.

KSP says that is eight more lives lost in the state on roadways this year than this time last year.

In the coming weeks, KSP in hopes the increased presence of troopers on roadway will help reduce fatalities and ensure the safety of the public as the year comes to an end.

Troopers will be focusing enforcement efforts on speeding violations, seatbelt, booster seat, and child restraint law violations, and impaired driving violations.

Drivers are being urged to obey all Kentucky traffic laws.

With the planned increase of troopers present on roadways, KSP is reminding drivers to slow down and move over for stopped emergency vehicles.
