The N.C. Highway Patrol is joining with local police and county sheriff offices to crack down on speeders during the next week, the Charlotte Observer reports.
The “No Need 2 Speed” campaign is set to continue through the Easter weekend. The campaign began today, and officials say all law enforcement agencies are participating.
“We are all busy, and we all have places to be,” said Becky Wallace, director of the Governor’s Highway Safety Program told the Observer. “That extra couple of minutes you might save isn’t worth your life — or the life of a loved one.” A similar campaign last year resulted in 13,435 citations for speeding.
