New speeding crackdown in North Carolina

Effective Thursday, Governor McCrory’s NC DOT began a campaign called,  “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine” speed limit crackdown.  Under the new mandate, speeding even 1 mile per hour over the posted speed is likely to result in receiving a ticket.  Speeding over a mile an hour may not seem to be a big deal.  But the license and insurance points could severely affect your insurance premiums, as well as the status of your license to drive.
