Highway Patrol Ready To Step On The Gas In Operation Slow Down

The North Carolina Highway Patrol has a message for everyone who is in a hurry this coming holiday season. Slow down.

Operation Slow Down will begin on Monday and will run until November 29th. Troopers are looking to step up enforcement of speed-related violations as well as educate the public on the dangers of excessive speed.

Speed related crashes are the number one cause of collisions and fatalities across our state and in Pitt County. Eighteen fatalities in Pitt and Martin counties were cause by speeding.

Drivers can expect to see more patrol cars on major thoroughfares throughout their counties and statewide.
