North Carolina law enforcement officers have been on an aggressive campaign the past couple weeks to crackdown on DWI. I ran across this article which gives a run down on the results of this crackdown operation. In Mecklenburg County along it appears that 107 citations were issued for DWI. I am happy to see that law enforcement in our area have been working vigorously to keep drunk drivers off our roads so we can all feel safer. Please be safe out there and if you have been drinking find someone who can give you a ride.
