Drivers urged to use caution along US 68 due to annual 400-mile yard sale

FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ)- Motorists traveling on US 68 throughout Kentucky should use caution as the annual “400-mile yard sale” that takes place along the highway runs through Sunday, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Also, the public is reminded that sales and parking are not allowed on roadway shoulders or rights of way in Kentucky. Doing so can greatly increase the risk of crashes and personal injuries.

During the event, motorists traveling US 68 should be aware that heavy, slower traffic is likely and be mindful of more pedestrians. Please wear your seat belt, travel the speed limit and reduce distractions. Just like in a construction zone, pay close attention when traveling through an area where multiple yard sales are taking place.

Yard sale visitors should park in designated areas off the highway only, and should pay close attention to traffic along the highway.
