The North Carolina Highway Patrol has recently released their list of citations issued over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. WLOS ABC News Channel 13 just reported on the various traffic citations that were issued over the busy holiday weekend. Across the state, the most cited offence was not drunk driving but driver's license violations. Listed below are the types and number of citations issued over the Independence Day weekend. This particular public safety campaign did not include statistics for speeding, because most of these citations were issued at traffic checkpoint locations.
WLOS ABC News Channel 13 recently reported on the relationship between some auto body shops and insurance companies in North Carolina. The report found that some auto body collision shops across the state have used untested and unregulated parts to fix vehicles, especially when insurance companies refer cars for work. Motorists trust recommendations from their insurance companies on auto body shops. Unfortunately in many cases, these shops are using inferior parts to pass the savings onto the insurance companies.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has just released a summer-themed consumer safety advisory. Road trips are a popular choice for summer vacations, and the NHTSA wants motorists to be prepared for safe and successful trips. Since nothing can ruin a family vacation faster than being stranded on the side of the highway, the NHTSA is encouraging drivers to get their automobiles fully serviced before hitting the road this summer.
