Memorial Day means the start of the deadliest time of the year on our highways and roads.

State Troopers, Scott County Deputies and Georgetown Police teamed up with McDonald’s on Thursday to reward drivers at safety checkpoints. People who bucked up were given coupons for free food.

Troopers say the decision to wear a seatbelt doesn’t just affect the drivers and passengers. Michael Webb with KSP said, “The last thing that a trooper or sheriff's deputy, or police officer wants to do is deliver a death notification to someone's loved one, especially when they were killed because they were ejected, uh, when they could have been safe just by simply having on a seat belt.”

Right now about eighty five percent of Kentuckians regularly use their seatbelts.
