Electronic message boards to show deadly crash totals

Kentucky's Office of Highway Safety will start using Kentucky's 50 electronic message boards to alert drivers to this year's number of deadly crashes.

Officials say the goal is to help remind drivers to pay attention to their driving habits.

The boards already give other messages, like Amber Alerts and road closures.

As of October 6Th, Kentucky has had two more deaths than at the same time last year.

But, a new government report shows fatalities on Kentucky roadways have been on a slow and steady decline since 2005.
