Semi trucks and cars share the road every day in Kentucky, but do they do it safely?

State enforcement officers are about to hold a statewide enforcement blitz aimed at making sure drivers are following the rules.

Crews will patrol in full force this Wednesday. They are keeping an eye out for unsafe drivers..

Sergeant Mike Taylor says the safety blitz is aimed at reducing the number of accidents involving commercial vehicles.

Drivers we talked with say they are happy to see the extra enforcement.

Most of us don't think twice about pressing down that gas pedal when we're in a rush.. Until we see those flashing lights.

Operation Safe Driver hits roadways this Wednesday.

“This program's going to run in the entire state on all major interstates,” Sgt. Taylor said.

Sgt. Mike Taylor and law enforcement across the state will crack down on impaired or reckless drivers, speeding, and seat belt enforcement.

Sgt. Taylor says he hopes to educate the public and cut down on the number of deadly accidents on Kentucky's interstates.

Sgt. Taylor says London officers will be out in full force starting at 6 Wednesday morning.
