Police officers have stepped up enforcement on the I-75 Kenton County corridor. An enforcement blitz is only a portion of the overall safety campaign. There will be special enforcement blitzes published on social media, which are conducted to remind motorists to change their aggressive driving behaviors and to make our highways safer for everyone.
On Tuesday, June 16 beginning at 8:00am, police officers from the Covington, Erlanger, Fort Mitchell, and Kenton County Police Departments will conduct their next highway safety traffic enforcement campaign in Kenton County. The Kentucky State Police and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement will also assist the officers.
The four partnering agencies have received a federal highway traffic safety grant from the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety to reduce the number of traffic crashes and deaths related to traffic crashes. In 2018, four people lost their lives to traffic crashes on the I-75 corridor in Kenton County. Enforcement of traffic laws will be increased on I-75 from the I-275 interchange in Erlanger to the Ohio River in Covington.
Many traffic crashes are avoidable and are caused by aggressive driving behavior. Let’s make a stand by encouraging people to alter their aggressive driving behavior. Call 9-1-1 if you witness dangerous driving so we can make an attempt to alter aggressive driving behavior.
Please help us spread the word to as many people as possible. Let them know the dates and times of the scheduled enforcement campaigns and officers will be assigned to work the interstate throughout the week at various times of the day. Throughout 2020 there will be scheduled enforcement campaigns advertised, but remember even if we do not advertise an enforcement blitz, we are still patrolling the I-75 corridor enforcing traffic laws.
