Speeders beware: This is your warning
This is your warning, motorists.
The N.C. Highway Patrol is launching an effort today to crack down on speeding.
Operation Slowdown is the title of a two-week effort to nab speeders on highways across North Carolina. It will continue through Thanksgiving weekend and will take place on interstate highways and on state and U.S. routes.
Highway Patrol officials say a similar program last year resulted in more than 16,000 speeding tickets being written out.
