Wilmington PD is on the prowl for those with lead feet. No, they’re not trying to prevent climate change, they’re trying to get more revenue.. . . err. . . I mean slow folks down.
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Police Department is using some unique methods this week to catch drivers who may be breaking the law. Today officers disguised themselves as roadside maintenance workers, including an officer on a tractor armed with a laser-radar. (c’mon, that’s just funny!)
In all, officers issued 27 citations during the morning traffic operation. Twenty-two were for speeding, one for expired registration, one for no seat belt and three drivers received written warnings.
That’s a good money day in the court room! When you add that to the new cameras at Wrightsville Beach (story coming soon) that can cross reference any and all potential violations on license tags as you drive by, Big Brother is definitely growing up.
