(LEX 18) — Kentucky State Police and other law enforcement across the Commonwealth will be out in full force on Tuesday night to keep the roads safe from impaired drivers.
KSP Trooper Adam Hall told LEX 18 that with all the ride-share apps that people have access to, there is no reason, or excuse, to drink and drive.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is also reminding drivers to utilize ride-share by displaying the electronic message "Don't drop the ball, plan a sober ride" on signs along I-75.
New Year's Eve is not the only day when impaired driving is an issue, however.
"The effect that it has on the friends and families and just the community, as far as when we do death notifications and making contact with loved ones of those victims as a result of the collision, ti's very tragic for everyone," said Hall.
