We are officially one week away from Christmas and many people are planning road trips to visit with family and friends for the upcoming holiday weekend. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says with the additional traffic, there is also normally a spike in car accidents this time of year.
Kettelkamp reminds everyone to designate a driver if you plan on drinking during your holiday get-togethers.
Kettelkamp says all levels of police, city, county, and state will be out in full force over the holidays.
Kettelkamp says the holidays are about having a good time, but law enforcement wants to make sure everyone is safe while celebrating.
Kettelkamp says fatalities have been lower in recent years, and he hopes everyone continues to follow the rules of the road to prevent any tragedies over the Christmas holiday.
