The Kentucky State Police have also posted checkpoint lists for Hancock, Henderson, Ohio, McLean, and Union Counties.

Folks, listen…don’t EVER get behind the wheel of a car when you’ve had too much to drink. If you drink any alcohol at all, you may not have any idea how it will affect you, so just give the keys to someone else. And, if you’re not going to be drinking but will around someone who will, be firm about getting his or her keys and making sure he or she DOES NOT DRIVE! And, by all means, keep the following numbers handy:

1. Yellow Cab Company, 683-6262

2. Comfort Cabs, 684-4646
