Law enforcement to add more patrols on I-75/I-275

Increased patrols on I-71/I-75 in NKY

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Law enforcement will be patrolling in full force along I-75 from Covington to I-275 in Erlanger starting Oct. 1.

Reports of several accidents have occurred on the interstate in areas like the cut-in-the-hill.

Officers from the Fort Mitchell, Kenton County, and Covington will be writing tickets for everything from aggressive and dangerous driving behaviors to speeding, improper lane changes, tailgating, distracted driving, reckless driving, and other violations.

Law enforcement and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) say the number of crashes on I-75 in Kentucky is unacceptable.

NHTSA says a crash on the road with a speed limit of 65 mph or higher is more than twice as likely to result in a fatality.

The initiative is set to last through September 2020.
