Clay County drivers are part of a Kentucky State Police (KSP) effort to reduce highway fatalities.
KSP is asking Kentuckian’s to ‘Finish Strong’ in 2014 by adhering to safe driving procedures including wearing seat belts, reducing speed, refraining from distractions and never driving impaired. Kentucky is currently at its lowest highway fatality rate in nearly fifty years.
Preliminary statistics indicate that ten people died on Kentucky roadways from Monday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014. During the same reporting period, KSP accounted for 411 seat belt citations, 116 aggressive driving citations, 49 distracted driving citations and 118 DUI arrests.
The #FinishStrongKY project began November 1, 2014 with a data driven strategy that places enforcement details in high crash zones where fatalities have occurred. The effort will remain in effect through the holidays.
KSP is partnering with the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety and the Federal Highway Administration to roll out the #FinishStrongKY media blitz. The agencies will utilize social media platforms to blast out uniform traffic safety messaging with the hash tag FinishStrongKY.
Clay County citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
