Attorney General Conway Announces New Resource To Keep Kentucky Roads Safer
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the launch of the Kentucky Traffic Safety website, www.Kytrafficsafety.com.
The site will allow prosecutors and law enforcement officers to view dates of upcoming traffic safety training events in Kentucky. It will also serve as a contact point for community concerns involving traffic safety issues. Police and prosecutors will be able to use the website to access state and national statistical data and information to assist them in their goals of reducing highway fatalities.
“It’s taken a team effort to create this website, and I believe police and prosecutors will benefit from having these resources available at their fingertips,” General Conway said.
The website construction and maintenance is funded through the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety with grant funds provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Transportation Secretary Joe Prather said the site will provide a much-needed resource for prosecutors and law enforcement personnel who need to be well-informed of DUI and other traffic-safety issues.
“The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety is proud of our continued partnership with the Office of the Attorney General to provide funding in support of the Commonwealth’s Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor and the development and maintenance of their newly developed traffic safety website,” said Prather, the Governor’s Representative for Highway Safety. “It is not only our responsibility, it is a priority of this administration to provide all highway safety professionals with the tools and resources they need to save and protect lives on our highways.”
Christian County Attorney Mike Foster, who also serves as President of the Kentucky Association of Counties and as a member of the Prosecutor’s Advisory Council in endorsing the Kentucky Safety website stated: “Attorney General Conway is to be commended for his implementation of the Kentucky Traffic Safety website and his commitment to provide specialized training to prosecutors concerning traffic issues and related crimes. Traffic crashes claim nearly 43,000 lives per year nationally. Kentucky is no exception as traffic collisions took the lives of over 800 Kentuckians and severely injured many more.”
