If you will be driving in Henderson this weekend, there will be traffic safety checkpoints set up at a number of local intersections and we know where they are. In an effort to promote safety for the public and to act as a deterrent to those who may be inclined to violate Kentucky law, the Henderson Police Department will be conducting stops and looking for motorists who are driving while under the influence. The checkpoints, taking place Friday and Saturday August 2 - 3 will take place at the following locations, according to a Facebook post shared by the city:

  • The intersection of Walnut Lane & Sunset Lane
  • The intersection of KY 2084 & HWY 136
  • HWY 414 at the City of Henderson Landfill
  • The intersection of Watson Lane & Stonegate Drive.

Please remember to make plans for a ride home if you've been drinking. Call a friend. Call a cab. Call an Uber. But please don't drink and drive.
