According to the KSP website Post 4 will be setting up safety checkpoints in the area.
POST 4 TRAFFIC SAFETY CHECKPOINTS
“Kentucky State Police Post Four will be conducting safety traffic checkpoints in the Post Four area. Troopers will be checking for impaired drivers, children that are not properly restrained in child safety seats, and to inform the public about the use of seatbelts. These safety checkpoints will be conducted in various locations throughout the Post Four area that are experiencing a high ratio of vehicular crashes resulting in injury and/or death compared to relatively low safety restraint usage ratio.”
An article published by The Pioneer News confirmed that the safety check points would occur during Labor Day weekend. The article which can be found by clicking here also stated,
“KSP Post 4 will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout our district during the Labor Day Holiday period to check motorists for compliance with motor vehicle laws including driving under the influence statutes. 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 article also stated that drivers who are prepared and have their license, registration, and proof of insurance and are not breaking any roadway laws will experience minimal delays. We hope everyone has a enjoyable and safe Holiday weekend. Drive safe Hardin County!
