Officers of the North Carolina Highway Patrol want to remind drivers to be careful over the Memorial Day weekend. Since this weekend kicks off the start of the summer season in the state, more people will be on the roadways, increasing the chance of auto accidents.
All interstates and four-lane highways will see an increase in patrols over the weekend. According to Colonel Michael Gilchrist, State Highway Patrol Commander, 'We are asking all motorists to buckle up and be extremely careful when traveling to their various destinations. I have instructed our Troopers to crack down on motorists who are speeding, driving recklessly and more importantly, drinking and driving.'
In addition, 'Click-It or Ticket' checkpoints will be set up across the state as part of 'Operation C.A.R.E' (Combined Accident Reduction Effort). These checkpoints are set up on most major holidays.
