Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Abstract RSF 114, Koper Curve Philosophy The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and the Kentucky State Police are partnering with the Kentucky Transportation Center to study the effects and reliability of a national enforcement model called the “Koper Curve” theory. The goal of this method is to create the perception of a significant enforcement presence by utilizing short bursts of roving patrols. The goal of the project is to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes on specific interstate corridors. KTC will assist KSP with training enforcement on this method and will help to prepare an activity sheet for officers to track their activity. KTC will analyze crash and inspection data against the activity sheets and prepare a final report summarizing the benefits of this type of enforcement.
