The North Carolina Highway Patrol issued 487 tickets to motorists
Aug. 16 in a speed reduction campaign along I-95. The patrol says
future crackdowns on highways throughout the state are planned.
The one-day speed reduction blitz resulted in 347 speeding violations,
five driving while impaired, 10 driving with license suspended or
revoked, 25 following too close and 100 other charges including
erratic lane changes.
Troopers tracked drivers from the South Carolina to Virginia state
lines using unmarked patrol vehicles, motorcycles and helicopters.
