State vehicles get 'How's my driving?' stickers

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear's administration is putting "How's my driving?" bumper stickers on state-owned vehicles with a telephone number to lodge complaints.

Finance Secretary Jonathan Miller said state vehicles have been involved in more than 1,100 accidents since last year. He said state employees driving the vehicles caused 70 percent of those accidents, resulting in nearly $1 million in damage claims.

Miller said it's time to hold state drivers accountable. The bumper stickers include the phone number to the Kentucky Division of Fleet Management: 502-564-2727.

The state also has added GPS systems to state vehicles to monitor their locations and speeds.
