Law enforcement officials will once again look for impaired drivers and traffic violators this weekend as part of a multi-state initiative.
Kentucky State Police will be teaming up with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project for a DUI enforcement initiative starting today and ending tomorrow in an effort to reduce DUI related fatal and injury crashes.
State Police say this high-visibility enforcement effort will include KSP, Indiana State Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Pennsylvania State Police, Michigan State Police, and the West Virginia State Police.
In Kentucky, troopers will focus their efforts on high DUI related crash areas and will conduct sobriety checkpoints and high-visibility saturation patrols in an effort to deter impaired driving.
State Police say there were 123 alcohol related fatal crashes on Kentucky highways last year.
