KSP will be watching for impaired drivers on New Years Eve

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The New Year is swiftly approaching, and Kentucky State Police assure they will be out in full force Thursday night.

In 2019, Kentucky State Police Post 3 issued 387 DUI’s.

That is more than one every day.

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous, and to keep the public safe, Kentucky State Police will be watching out for drunk drivers on New Year’s Eve.

Trooper Daniel Priddy says they don’t pull you over to ruin your fun, but instead to keep you and others safe.

If you suspect a drunk driver, report it to officials immediately and stay at a distance away from the vehicle.
