NO NEED 2 SPEED CAMPAIGN UNDER WAY Monday, November 15, 2010

RALEIGH – The Governor’s Highway Safety Program and the N.C. State Highway Patrol announced today that they are kicking off the No Need 2 Speed campaign. Local law enforcement agencies will join state troopers Nov. 15-28 to conduct stepped up patrols and enforcement to catch speeders on North Carolina’s highways.
 
“North Carolina law enforcement will be cracking down on speeders who recklessly endanger our citizens,” said GHSP director David Weinstein. “We lost 472 people last year due to speed-related crashes. I urge drivers to slow down and obey the speed limit.”
 
Officers will focus their efforts on interstates and major four-lane highways across the state. During the No Need 2 Speed campaign in April, state and local law enforcement agencies cited 15,789 motorists for speeding.
 
Dangerous driving can be reported to the SHP by dialing *HP on cellular phones from anywhere in the state.  For more information on No Need 2 Speed, go to the Governor's Highway Safety Program GHSP Web site.
