Make It To The Table Enforcement

Frankfort, KY — Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally one of the most heavily traveled holidays of the year and to ensure drivers make it safely to their destinations, troopers will be on Kentucky roadways looking for safety belt and impaired driving violations. In addition to those infractions, the KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division will place an emphasis on truck violations and inspections. KSP is partnering with the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety to support the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “Make It to the Table: Don’t Drink and Drive” Thanksgiving enforcement effort. Federal grant funds, provided through KOHS, will allow KSP to utilize more troopers and officers on Kentucky highways during peak travel times. The NHTSA campaign coincides with Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness and Reduction Effort), a national enforcement effort, scheduled to take place during the four-day holiday driving season beginning November 27 at 6:00 P.M. to December 1, 2019 at 11:59 P.M. According to the Kentucky Traffic Collision Facts Report, the four-day Thanksgiving holiday travel period accounted for 1,971 collisions with 9 fatalities in 2018. KSP encourages everyone on and off Kentucky’s roadways to stay safe this Thanksgiving holiday.
