  • Over the limit will lead to an arrest

    Kentucky Office of Highway Safety issues tough reminder to public: If you are over the limit you will be under arrest!

    Unfortunately drunk driving is nothing new in Kentucky, and nationally is still one of America’s deadliest crimes, killing more than 13,000 people each year.

    In Kentucky last year, there were approximately 6,000 alcohol-related crashes, resulting in over 2,200 injuries and 182 deaths.

  • KOHS continues crackdown on drunk drivers through Labor Day weekend

    FRANKFORT  - The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS), an agency of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, is joining state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to reduce impaired-driving crashes over the Labor Day weekend.

    The holiday crackdown coincides with the state’s “Drunk Driving.  Over the Limit.  Under Arrest” campaign, which began Aug. 21 and ends on Labor Day.

  • MY VIEWS: No one immune to untimely events

    Maybe it is the fact that my son is just weeks away from getting his driver’s license.

    Or maybe it is from writing too many stories detailing death coming much too early for too many youths in our community.

    The old belief that the young is indestructible is nothing but a myth.

    Just ask the families of Preston Cissell, Jason Smith and R.D. Reynolds.

    The community lost each of these young men in the recent couple of months. They were lost in different ways but they were all lost much too early in their lives.

  • Be safe as schools open

    Each year, we preach about the need to be safe on the roadways as students get ready to return to the classrooms.

    This year is no different. However, there is an added emphasis on safety.

    Thanks to the federal stimulus dollars, major road construction projects have been started throughout the county. These projects will not be completed for months to come.

    There is also the added dangers at the various schools. Although classes are set to begin on Tuesday, that doesn’t mean all the construction has been completed.
