(KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says as you celebrate the holiday season enjoying traditions, food, family and fun, be reminded that state and local law enforcement officers will be out in force to arrest anyone caught driving drunk behind the wheel.
Kentucky Office of Highway Safety Director Bill Bell said the message is simple: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. He said as easy as that sounds, unfortunately many drivers still choose to jeopardize their safety and the safety of others on our roads by getting behind the wheel after drinking.
KYTC says 10 people were killed on Kentucky roadways last year during the Christmas and New Year's holiday. They say three of the deaths involved alcohol.
“This holiday season, the KOHS is honored to have a family from Kentucky help spread the message about the dangers of drinking and driving,” said Bell.
