  • Short days, long nights, use your headlights

     The first day of winter is the shortest day of the year, meaning daylight is at its minimum. It’s also the season in which motorists find themselves driving more in the dark – and encountering others who are driving without headlights.

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Kentucky State Police remind motorists to make themselves visible. Crashes often occur because drivers don’t see other vehicles.
