Safety Checkpoints For New Year's Holiday

If you plan to hit the roads, Kentucky State Police will be watching.

Police will increase patrols and safety checkpoints, beginning at six o'clock Friday night. Extra patrols will last until early New Year's Day.

Police say they'll be watching for speeders, those not wearing their seat belts, child restraints and impaired driving.

    Unless you are hiding something, why not shut up and suck it up. Appreciate what these men and women are doing to keep people safe, even whiny tails such as your self. I had much rather someone be inconvenienced for a couple of minutes than some drunk/high driver hit and hurt or kill someone.

    @Otis Campbell Location: Mayberry WHo ever said drinking and driving was ok? Can you not read? I simply stated that road block are ILLEGAL! Stopping me and wasting my time and 50 others in front of me just so cops can have the edge on people they would never have caught otherwise for anything. Is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Btw how many crimes have you not been caught doing? Speeding? Prostituion? Or maybe your the jerk that smokes with their baby in the car?

    Wow since driving intoxiced is o.k. why not give small children loaded firearms? Makes as much sense as your ignorant statement. By the way, whats on your rap-sheet?

    Glad they are checking. There is so many that eat and drink at these restuarants and bars and drive home. Endangering themselfvess and other drivers on the roads. Hope they payclose attention to danville and Lancaster areas.

    Too late now to have check points. Lexington has already throwed the doors wide open for drinking almost any hour and on Sunday. Let them drink and drive. Maybe they will all be in a wreck and the rest of us can drive home safely. I'll be home Monday night, car in the garage, feet proped up, my money in MY POCKET and not feeling hungover the next morning. And I know whose wife I will wake up with the next morning.

    Supreme cout rules roadblock unconstitutional so the cops rename them "safety checkpoints" and perfom the exact same privacy invading police state procedures as a road block. I say everyone caught in a "safety checkpoint" should get a lawyer and fight it on a federal level.
