KSP Post 15 has received an increase in complaints of vehicles passing on the right side of the roadway (shoulder) and has seen an increase in the number of collisions resulting from these improper passes.
GREEN COUNTY has had 3 collisions in recent months at the intersection of US 68 and Marshall Ridge Road in the area of Rocky Run.
The Kentucky state law reads:
"...the operator of a vehicle may overtake and pass upon the right of another vehicle only under the following conditions: when the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn; upon a roadway with an unobstructed pavement of sufficient width for 2 or more lines of vehicles moving lawfully in the direction being traveled by the overtaking vehicle. The operator of a vehicle may overtake and pass another vehicle upon the right only under conditions permitting such movements in safety. Such movement shall not be made by driving off the roadway unless passing vehicle comes to a complete stop and such movement may be made safely."
Kentucky State Police are asking that all drivers make a more concerted effort to adhere not only to this law but to the proper practices of safe driving; slowing at intersections, coming to a complete stop, signaling early and every time a direction change is made, keeping an appropriate and safe following distance, buckling up and traveling at safe speeds.
