Three day CMV crackdown underway in Kentucky


State police are taking part in a three day CMV crackdown in Kentucky this week.

From February 27 — 29, 2024, Kentucky State Police (KSP) are participating in an Operation SafeDRIVE (Distracted Reckless Impaired Visibility Enforcement) detail statewide.

The purpose of Operation SafeDRIVE is to target unsafe driving behaviors that lead to crashes involving commercial vehicles.

KSP Commercial Vehicle Inspectors will open scale houses during Operation SafeDRIVE to ensure that truckers are in compliance with motor carrier safety regulations, including hours of service compliance, commercial driver license compliance, medical certification, and commercial motor vehicle credentialing.

During the three day effort, KSP will be on patrol for dangerous driving behaviors including aggressive driving, speeding, tailgating, failing to wear a seat belt, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.

“Our CVE officers and inspectors are committed to preventing dangerous driving behaviors like aggressive or distracted driving,” said Officer Stevie Douglas, East Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Spokesperson “Crashes are preventable, and this initiative makes it safer for everyone on our roadways.”
