More law enforcement will patrol roadways this week as part of the N.C. Governor’s Highway Safety Program’s “Speed a Little, Lose A Lot” campaign. 

The campaign takes place through March 31.

According to NCGHSP Director Mark Ezzell, speeding was the main factor of deadly crashes in 2022.

“Though a simple message, the reminder to slow down could save lives,” he said in a press release. “We want people to arrive safely to their destinations.”

Data shows travelers that move at higher speeds put others in danger of crashes and injuries. According to the program, speeds have steadily increased since the first observational survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2002. 

“We are committed to working alongside all of our traffic safety partners to bring awareness through this educational and enforcement campaign until no lives are lost due to another preventable tragedy,” Colonel Freddy Johnson Jr., commander of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, said in a press release.
