Local law enforcement officers conducted a day long speed enforcement operation in and around Cameron Thursday. From 8:00 am in the morning until 5:00 pm that afternoon officers endured cold rainy weather to enforce speed and other traffic laws in the area.
There was a focus on NC Highway 24/27 with officers clocking some people reportedly driving their vehicles in the 60 and even 70 mph range while traveling in a 35-mph zone.
According to officials, officers took a primarily educational and warning approach to the enforcement event Thursday issuing 11 speed warnings, 4 speeding citations, 1 tag violation, and 1 inspection violation.
Participating were units with Cameron Police Department, Pinehurst Police Department, and the Moore County Sheriff’s Department.
The motoring public can expect to see an increase in speed enforcement operations as well as checkpoint operations in Cameron and other parts of Moore County between now and the first of the year as law enforcement officers work even harder to try and protect the citizens of our area throught the holiday season and into the new year ahead.
