Transportation Cabinet urges caution during US 127 Yard Sale

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – As Central Kentucky prepares for the annual U.S. 127 Yard Sale, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has some reminders for shoppers and other motorists.

First and foremost, the Cabinet is customers and vendors that there are no sales or parking on state right of way. The Cabinet wants to ensure that drivers have the proper amount of sight distance for intersections, driveway entrances and curves.

The cabinet is also offering these reminders:

•Watch for parked cars, slowed traffic and vehicles turning into or out of side streets and driveways.

•Park a safe distance from the highway, preferably outside a 22-foot “recovery zone” extending from the white line on the pavement edge. This area gives motorists room in which to maneuver in case of trouble.

•Watch for pedestrians, and especially for children and pets in the area of yard sales.

•Use seat belts, obey posted speed limits and other traffic laws, and refrain from drinking and driving.
