FRANKFORT, Ky. (February 28, 2023) — Kentucky State Police (KSP) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement will participate in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Operation SafeDRIVE (Distracted Reckless Impaired Visibility Enforcement) from Feb. 28 – March 2. This enforcement campaign targets unsafe driving behavior that often leads to crashes involving passenger cars and commercial vehicles. It complements national efforts to educate all drivers on safely sharing roads with large trucks.


The regional SafeDRIVE initiative cracks down on dangerous interstate driving behaviors such as aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating, failing to wear a seat belt, distracted driving, and driving under the influence. During this effort, KSP Commercial Vehicle Inspectors will open scale facilities, ensuring commercial drivers follow safety regulations, including hours of service compliance, commercial driver license compliance, medical certification, and commercial motor vehicle credentialing. KSP will be participating in the event with twelve other states including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.


Major Nathan Day, Director for the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division, says Operation SafeDRIVE can significantly impact highway safety.


“We want Kentucky roadways to be safe for all drivers, and Operation SafeDRIVE is another way for us to ensure motorists are following the rules of the road,” says Major Day. “By working together, we can make sure everyone makes it to their destinations.”


KSP encourages all motorists to take the following advice while driving on the roads:

  • Stay out of blind spots:Large trucks and buses have big blind spots on all four sides.
  • Pass safely:Make sure you can see the truck driver in their side mirror. Use your turn signals, and don’t linger in the blind spot. Make sure you can see the CMV vehicle in your rearview mirror before pulling in front.
  • Don’t cut off large vehicles:It takes a large truck traveling at highway speeds the length of two football fields to stop.
  • Don’t tailgate:Tailgating a commercial vehicle puts you in a blind spot.


Operation SafeDRIVE coordinates with a national campaign run by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration called “Our Roads, Our Safety,” which educates all motorists on how to share the road safely.


The mission of KSP is to promote public safety through service, integrity and professionalism using partnerships to prevent, reduce and deter crime and the fear of crime, enhance highway safety through education and enforcement, safeguard property and protect individual rights.

The number one priority for KSP is to create a better Kentucky by making the commonwealth’s streets safer, communities stronger and the nation more secure by providing exceptional law enforcement made up of a diverse workforce.

(Frankfort, KY) - "We're grateful for the Kentucky Supreme Court's ruling yesterday that upheld two important laws restricting abortion," said CPC Executive Director Richard Nelson. "The Court should be commended for showing judicial restraint."


The Court kept in place the Heartbeat Law which banned abortions after six weeks and the Human Life Protection Act, which reinstated a ban on abortion after Roe v. Wade was overturned last summer. "Many Kentuckians were concerned that a negative ruling would have amounted to a state level Roe v. Wade, where an activist court usurped the role of the legislature and voice of the citizenry," Nelson said. "We're pleased that a majority of the court refused to go that route." The Court ruled by a 4-3 margin.


The case has been sent back to the Circuit Court, where oral arguments will proceed in light of their ruling. In the meantime, and in practical terms, the ruling ensures that abortion centers are still outlawed in Kentucky, and unborn babies will have an opportunity at a chance at life.
