ksp checkpoint 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (5/15/17) — The Kentucky State Police would like to offer periodic reminders to drivers who travel roadways.

The agency stated in a press release proactive measures include various traffic safety checkpoints and presence in problematic areas will take place throughout the Post 2 district.

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 a 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 and/or other public safety issues that arise 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.
