May 20, 2009

WILLIAMSBURG, KY --- The Kentucky State Police said it is joining the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Michigan State Police in a special enforcement operation this week to crack down on traffic violations by commercial motor vehicles. 

According to the Kentucky Post, these agencies will focus their efforts on I-75 through Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky. The law enforcement agencies are targeting specific violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) that deal with driver safety, such as lack of proper logbook documentation and Commercial Driver's License credentials. 

Officers will also be on the lookout for moving violations include speeding, following too close, and unsafe lane changes by trucks and passenger cars alike. This year, as of May 17, Kentucky has recorded 29 highway deaths involving a commercial vehicle, the Kentucky Post reported.
