KY Highway Fatalities Down

According to state highway safety director Boyd Sigler, traffic deaths in Kentucky are on pace to be the lowest this year since at least the early 1990s. There were 791 deaths in 2009, which was the lowest since 1994. Sigler says he thinks Kentucky drivers are focusing more on things like buckling up and not driving while intoxicated. Starting in 2011, Kentucky State Police will be issuing tickets for texting while driving, under a rule state lawmakers approved earlier this year. Police have been issuing warnings since July about the new law. As of last  Wednesday, there were 739 traffic fatalities in Kentucky.
