During storms and for other reasons, traffic lights will sometimes malfunction and go into "flash mode" where one direction of traffic has a flashing red light and the other has a flashing yellow light. This seems to create confusion for many drivers as they mistakenly believe that this creates a situation such as a four-way stop, where all approaching vehicles must stop. This is not true and this mistake may lead one to pull out in front of a vehicle that is not required to stop. To understand how to handle this situation, let's first review what the law (KRS 189.338(5)) tells us. (5) Whenever an illuminated flashing red or yellow light is used in a traffic signal or with a traffic sign it shall require obedience by vehicular traffic as follows: (a) Flashing red (stop signal) - When a red lens is illuminated with rapid intermittent flashes, operators of vehicles shall stop at a clearly marked stop line but, if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the operator has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering it, and the right to proceed shall be subject to the rules applicable after making a stop at a stop sign; and (b) Flashing yellow (caution signal) - When a yellow lens is illuminated with rapid intermittent flashes, operators of vehicles may proceed through the intersection or past such signal only with caution. Here is how to handle this situation. If you pull up to the light and your lane has a flashing red light, after you have come to a complete stop, look at the lights that traffic crossing your path has. If they also have red lights, you may treat the intersection similar to a four-way stop, and those rules will apply. The flashing red lights are essentially stop signs. If the crossing traffic has yellow lights, they are not required to stop and they should be treated as if they have no stop sign or any other device to tell them to slow or stop. You must wait until traffic is clear and then you may proceed. If you approach the intersection and you have a yellow light, you may proceed with caution. But, use a lot of caution. Many mistakenly believe they are at a four-way stop. Someone that arrived at the intersection before you may mistakenly think you are required to stop and will pull out in front of you, so be ready for that. Also, remember to be extra aware of each vehicle in the area and what they are doing. The change in the way the intersection is working will create confusion, so be ready. Slow down and proceed with caution.

Between the evening of 05-17-17 and the morning of 05-18-17, the pictured vehicle, which was parked in a front yard on Short Race Street, was struck by another unknown vehicle. The unknown vehicle left the scene. If you have any information about this collision, please contact Chief Rick Kells at 859-428-1212.

Update - 04:47 pm - 03-27-17: Subject in the photos has been identified. The vehicle pictured appears to be a full size pickup truck, most likely a Dodge Ram, Black or other dark color, with two tone silver or other light color from the doors back, with the front fenders a solid color, two working overhead clearance lights, what appears to be aftermarket wheels, and extended mirrors typically used when towing trailers. We need to speak to the owner/driver of this vehicle regarding property damage. If you know who the owner/driver is, please contact us at 859-428-1212.

Check your 5 dollar bills. This one that is pictured is a fake. The person that passed it didn't know until after they gave it as tip money. Note the serial number on the bill. Also, look for the hidden strip and the watermark. Both are missing on this one. (The maker may have some with different numbers)

Special attention to local businesses... On 12-19-2016, somewhere around 4:30pm, two subjects passed a counterfeit $100 bill at a local business in Dry Ridge. The serial number on the bill was LB15340433E. The persons described as the perpetrators are a black male, thin build and a black female medium build. They were in a cream large body sedan. They went into the business and made a purchase for almost $8.00, and then payed with the fake bill. It is likely that this bill is a reproduction of a real bill and there are several fake ones of the same serial number out there. Watch for that serial number. If anyone has any information on who the perpetrators are, please contact Officer Kyle Wallace at 859-428-1212.
