State transportation officials want to make sure truckers using Interstate 77 around Lake Norman keep their eyes on the road and not on the boaters trying to get their attention.
WCNC in Charlotte reports the N.C. Department of Transportation believes the boaters are causing traffic delays because some women flash the truckers, who slow down to get a better look. As a result, NCDOT installed buoys around the causeway with signs that say no boats are allowed to stop or dock between that point and the interstate.
Officials have also installed signs for Accident Investigation Sites at certain ramps so drivers can move minor accidents away from high traffic areas.
