Campaign on North Carolina highway is safety reminder

In our previous post, we shared safety travel tips for the Thanksgiving holiday. While adopting those tips might reduce your chance of being in a car accident this week, it is also wise to remember that creating safe roads is a collaborative effort. 

North Carolina officials are part of that collaboration, a strong part this week as they will be lined up across I-40 in North Carolina and beyond in order to try to catch any bad driving behaviors. The "N.C. Interstate Challenge Campaign" will include marked and unmarked police vehicles along the highway that are looking for those drivers who will ignore safe driving tips and laws on what are some of the most dangerous driving days of the year.

The day before and the day after Thanksgiving are risky driving days when a significant number of traffic accidents occur. People are travelling to and from holiday celebrations with their friends and families. Roads are busy, and drivers might be in a rush to get to their destinations. Maybe they are too tired, or even intoxicated following holiday events. 

North Carolina travelers who use I-40 will be less likely to get away with their risky driving behaviors due to the traffic safety campaign that is now in effect. At least every 20 miles there will be a law enforcement officer watching for risky driving. The hope is that the campaign will prevent traffic accidents before they happen and persuade drivers to be safe, thoughtful drivers this holiday. 

Not even the work of these officers over the next few days will create completely safe roads. Anyone who is injured in a wreck because of a negligent driver should discuss their case with a personal injury attorney in their area.
