Yard Sales can present traffic hazards

By Chris Jessie, Public Information Officer
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 4, Elizabethtown, KY

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (May 26, 2015) - Yard sales are often set up in dangerous locations. With regional yard sale dates selected, such as US 127 or US 68 events, there is often a disregard for sight distance, parking conditions and right-of-way infringement.
