FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police have started a new initiative aimed at cracking down on aggressive, impaired and distracted driving.

The effort, known as Operation R.A.I.D., began on Sunday and continues until Jan. 24.

State police officials say the statewide effort is aimed at reducing collisions and loss of life.

Officials say each KSP post will utilize specific data indicating where the majority of crashes occurred, the cause of the crashes and times when the crashed occurred. Based on that data, posts will increase enforcement efforts in those targeted zones for all passenger and commercial vehicles.
