State police take on distracted driving with Operation R.A.I.D.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – As part of April’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, State Police have initiated an enforcement campaign called Operation R.A.I.D.

The initials of the campaign stand for Remove Aggressive, Impaired and Distracted drivers from Kentucky roadways.  KSP commanders say the program focuses on driving behaviors that cause the most crashes in the state. 

The campaign places special importance on spotting and eliminating aggressive driving.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that aggressive drivers cause two-thirds of all fatal crashes, and 35 percent of all crashes.
