Kentucky State Police will be on high alert for intoxicated drivers, people not wearing seat belts and motorists with improper registration displays during the days surrounding the Fourth of July holiday, according to a news release.

Kentucky State Police Post 12, which covers Franklin, Anderson, Fayette, Scott, Shelby, Spencer and Woodford counties, will conduct periodic traffic safety checkpoints at numerous locations approved by the Kentucky State Police Policy and Procedures Manual. There will also be special traffic enforcement in high collision areas using radar, laser and saturation patrols.
