State police to join I-75 crackdown

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police are teaming up with law enforcement from five other states along the Interstate 75 corridor to try to reduce traffic fatalities.


The "I-75 Challenge" campaign is being conducted in support of a nationwide initiative by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to reduce U.S. traffic fatalities by 15 percent this year.

The challenge will consist of four high-visibility enforcement weekends. The March 28 and Dec. 26 weekends will target impaired driving; June 27 will be motorcycle safety; and the weekend of Sept. 26 will focus on occupant protection, distracted driving and speeding.

During the enforcement periods, increased numbers of law enforcement officials will be positioned along the 1,786-mile I-75 corridor.

The other participating states are Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio and Michigan.
