The North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program will begin its Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine speeding enforcement campaign Thursday with a kick off featuring state and local law enforcement in Rocky Mount, N.C.

The Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine campaign zeros in on drivers traveling over the posted speed limit. Many Americans believe they won’t be ticketed if they drive within a “buffer zone” above the posted speed limit.

Law enforcement will be targeting and ticketing speeding drivers at all times. When it comes to speeding, Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine. The posted speed limit is the law.
