Local law enforcement joins national crackdown


The Frankfort Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office are joining other law enforcement agencies nationwide for the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.

The national initiative runs through Sept. 1 and includes high-visibility enforcement in an effort to make roadways safer during the heavily traveled Labor Day holiday.

To help combat drinking and driving, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety partnered with Mobile Life Solutions last year to develop the “Drive Sober Kentucky” smart phone app.

The free app contains phone numbers to taxi services, limousine services and sober ride programs, along with a one-touch dial feature to report a drunken driver and information about the designated driver HERO campaign.

To download the app, visit www.DriveSoberKY.com.

Local taxi services, limousine services or sober ride programs that are not included in the app but would like to participate can send contact information to info@drivesoberky.com.

    "Thanks Brunokno......for keeping it short."

    Never have to worry about you being verbose...your comments are always pithy...real pithy. And that ain't all...I'm jus' sayin'...

  • Please give tickets to the speeders.  There are cars, etc going too fast and never mind the speedlimit at all.

  • Thanks Brunokno......for keeping it short.

  • Great job!  We need more of this.  DUI is the most serious threat that we face around here and our policies should reflect this and not ignore it.
