The Charlotte, North Carolina truck accident lawyers at Auger & Auger are hopeful that Operation Road Watch yields successful results.
NC Highway Patrol (NCHP) announced that starting today, August 24, 2010, and running through August 26, 2010, “Operation Road Watch”will be in effect on I77 in Mecklenburg County. Troopers will be conducting safety inspections on commercial vehicles and will be on the lookout for motorists who are following too closely, speeding, and driving aggressively.
Last year, NCHP investigated 5,577 out of 8,641 wrecks that involved tractor trailer trucks. Of the crashes they investigated, there were nearly 100 deaths, and almost 2,000 injuries. Officials are hopeful that their crackdown on safety will reduce the number of accidents between cars and trucks.
