CHARLOTTE – North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers will be on the lookout for unsafe drivers over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. As part of the Governor's Highway Safety Program, troopers are now participating in Operation Firecracker, an effort to reduce the number of crashes and fatalities in the week leading up to the holiday.
Troopers say they don't plan to practice much leniency in the days leading up to this weekend. The stepped up enforcement for the weekend is known as Booze It and Lose It Operation Firecracker.
Police and sheriff's deputies also plan to join forces on the roads. Over last year's Fourth of July holiday weekend, North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers charged 1,340 people with DWI.
Troopers say Operation Firecracker isn't meant to punish people during the holiday, but rather to protect the roads and drivers from those who choose not to be safe.
^haha that is a complete joke.
If you watch the video, he gives a woman a ticket for going 15MPH over the PSL and he says this is a mandatory court date since you are going 15 over...NICE NC.
North Carolina sucks ass.
