The Kentucky State Police are a part of an exciting 2013 campaign “The Kentucky Heroes Program”. The program promotes sober designated drivers. The program partners with bar, tavern owners, package goods stores, and law enforcement. Our goal is to keep impaired drivers off of Kentucky roadways. Help us save lives by promoting the use of designated drivers and the Real Family–Friendly Kentucky.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 1 in 3 Americans will be impacted by a drunken driving crash in his or her lifetime.

If you see a possible impaired driver you can call the local Kentucky State Police Post or your local Law enforcement Department.
