Lexington police made two arrests and issued 36 citations at a traffic checkpoint at the Fayette-Woodford county line Monday.
From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Lexington Division of Police, coordinating with state police, Versailles police and the Woodford County sheriff's office, conducted their first checkpoint during this year's "Click It or Ticket" campaign.
Lexington officers arrested two people for driving without a license, issued six seat-belt violation tickets, and issued 30 other citations for various infractions, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
Corporal Jeff Farmer of the Versailles police department said 13 citations were issued in Woodford County as well.
Never miss a local story.
Hundreds of motorists who weren’t violating any laws were given a voucher to win six Kentucky Speedway tickets.
Traffic enforcement will be increased during the campaign, which will last until June 6. Officers will be on the look out for seat-belt violations, distracted driving and suspected drunk drivers, Roberts said.
Motorists can expect more checkpoints on major roadways during that time.
