While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say this year's "Click It or Ticket" enforcement campaign resulted in more than 19,000 citations for failing to buckle up.
The annual effort was supported by more than 220 state and local law enforcement agencies. It was held from late May to early June.
The campaign's main goal is to encourage seat belt use by enforcing Kentucky's seat belt law.
As a result, citations were given to 19,594 motorists for not buckling up.
State Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock says the campaign's goal is not to write tickets but to save lives.
Officers who set up 642 traffic safety checkpoints during the campaign also made 1,103 drunken driving arrests.
