Graves Co. deputies held 4th 'Rewards Checkpoint' at KY 1820, KY 339 intersection | News
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - On Friday, August 16 deputies with the Graves County Sheriff's Office took some time to reward drivers for wearing their seat belts.
The sheriff's office held their fourth "Rewards Checkpoint" at the intersection of KY 1820 and KY 339 in Melber. Drivers who pulled up to the checkpoint wearing their seat belts received a free pizza buffet coupon courtesy of the Mayfield Snappy Tomato.
The checkpoint was part of the current "When Will It Click?" campaign that the sheriff's office is involved in through the end of September.
The first two rewards checkpoints were held at Graves County High School and Mayfield High School in the spring. The third rewards checkpoint was held in July at the intersection of KY 131 and KY 348 in Symsonia.
Drivers at that rewards checkpoint received food coupons from Mayfield locations of either Burger King or Taco Johns.
More rewards checkpoints will be coming over the next six weeks at other locations in Graves County.
"We want the public to see that we are not just here to write them tickets, we are truly concerned for their safety while they are traveling," said Graves County Sheriff's Office Captain Jeremy Prince. "We want them to buckle up every time they get into a vehicle so if an accident does occur, it is less likely that they or their loved ones while be seriously hurt or killed."
The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Mayfield locations of Taco Johns, Burger King and Snappy Tomato for their donations to help with the "When Will It Click?" campaign.
