North Carolina law enforcement pulled together last week for a statewide campaign against speeding drivers. Officers targeted fast drivers in an effort to improve overall road safety under the umbrella of the Governor's Highway Safety Program yearly campaign. Take Wilson County, North Carolina, for example, which attributes many of the crashes within the county to speeding according to Wilson's Strategic Traffic Enforcement Patrol (STEP). This is the group of officers that makes sure drivers are following the law and also the group that investigate accidents.
It does not take much time for officers to pull over a driver and issue a ticket. Officers usually ask for the driver's license and then scan it through the data base to check for any issues. After about 10 minutes or so, an officer can print the traffic citation and send the driver away, ticket in tow.
