A Message from the
Kentucky Office of Highway Safety

Our people – YOU – are what makes Kentucky a great place to live, work or just pass through. Kentucky is home to some of the world’s most scenic views and our transportation network connects you, not only with them, but to each other. Highway safety isn’t about numbers of crashes, or numbers of deaths, it’s about you – the people who travel in and through Kentucky –safely arriving at your destination. Every trip. Every time.

At the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, we’re committed to making sure that every time you travel, whether it’s to the corner store or across the Commonwealth, each trip is as safe as possible – a commitment we proudly share with all Kentuckians. We partner with people across the state, strengthening communities and helping one another prevent deaths, injuries and highway crashes through a variety of traffic safety initiatives and programs.

How can you help improve safety in your community, family, workplace, school, civic group, etc.? We’re so glad you asked! We call these the “three I’s” – work with us to get:

  • Informed about highway safety
  • Involved with improving safety
  • Intentional about your example

Enlist one our speakers for your event or meeting. Take advantage of one our safety education programs. Report a road hazard when you see one. Give our first responders and road workers some space. Above all, remember that safety starts with each one of us. Always set the example when you are behind the wheel: buckle up, put the phone down, don’t drive impaired, and look out for one another.

Together, we can ensure our roadways are as safe as our Commonwealth is beautiful. Thank you for doing your part!
