KSP to conduct traffic safety checkpoints

Kentucky State Police will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the Post 1 district, checking drivers for compliance with vehicle laws, including checking for those who may be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

KSP said the intent of a traffic safety checkpoint is to provide for a high-visibility public safety service. While troopers at public safety checkpoints check for vehicle deficiencies and confirm registration and proof of insurance, KSP can also address state law and statute violations and public safety issues such as impaired driving.

Drivers entering public safety checkpoints are asked to have their driver’s license or operator’s license, registration receipt and proof of insurance on-hand. According to KSP, drivers with these items ready for inspection and those with no violations of the law and minimal roadway congestion can expect a delay of no more than 30 seconds to a few minutes.

In the Post 1 district, there will be traffic safety checkpoints in Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Livingston, Lyon, McCracken, Marshall and Trigg counties.
