On December 8th 2011 The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) honored 201 law enforcement officers from 185 agencies across the Commonwealth for their efforts to target impaired drivers; Patrolman Kyler Wright of the West Liberty Police Department was among those receiving honors.

The 2011 Governor’s Impaired Driving Enforcement Awards ceremony was held at the Embassy Suites hotel in Lexington. Awards were presented to officers with the most impaired driving arrests in each agency and division.

“Impaired driving is not an accident —it’s an epidemic of careless disregard for human life,” said KOHS Director Bill Bell, who presented the awards at the ceremony. “These officers, their departments and agencies render a great service for public safety by removing drunken and drugged drivers from our roads.”

In Kentucky, more than 5,800 impaired crashes resulted in 154 deaths and more than 3,200 injuries in 2010.

“Public safety improves exponentially every time an impaired driver is removed from the roadway,” Justice and Public Safety Secretary J. Michael Brown said. “Were it not for the actions of these men and women, there would undoubtedly be more accidents, injuries or worsen our streets and highways.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one out of every three Americans will be impacted by a drunken driving crash in their lifetime.
