Troopers to man checkpoints



The Cincinnati Enquirer

DRY RIDGE - During the next several months troopers assigned to Kentucky State Police Post 6 will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints throughout the region.

Officials said the checkpoints will be set up in designated areas on highways where statistics have shown a significant number of vehicle crashes.

Troopers will focus on stopping drunk drivers, in addition to issuing citations for unlicensed drivers, unregistered vehicles and children not properly buckled. Other violations observed at the checkpoints will be investigated and enforced.

Local police agencies may assist at the checkpoints that are being conducted throughout the state as part of a nationally funded program to reduce the number of wrecks with injuries.

The Northern Kentucky checkpoints will be on, but not limited to:

•  Ky. 10 between mile points 9.070 and 20.341 in Bracken County,

•  Ky. 8 between mile points 4.384 and 9.666 in Bracken County,

•  Ky. 1159 between mile points 1.011 and 3.249 in Bracken County,

•  U.S. 25 between mile points 0.074 and 22.829 in Grant County,

•  Ky. 22 between mile points 2.576 and 15.126 in Grant County,

•  Interstate 75 between mile points 143.439 and 166.043 in Grant County,

•  U.S. 27 between mile points 0.806 and 19.413 in Pendleton County,

•  Ky. 22 between mile points 0.100 and 17.393 in Pendleton County,

•  Ky. 17 between mile points 1.765 and 8.941 in Pendleton County.
