HICKORY — On this Fourth of July holiday, the Highway Patrol will be out in force to keep North Carolina’s roads safe.

Sgt. B.K. Sharpe, of the Catawba district, confirmed the Highway Patrol will be running saturation patrols, checking stations and using light detecting and ranging units throughout Hickory and Catawba County.

Sharpe said residents need to obey the speed limits and make sure they give themselves plenty of time to get where they’re going this Fourth of July. He says he wants to make sure road rage and speeding incidents are kept to a minimum this year and that citizens enjoy themselves on Independence Day.

According to a release from the Highway Patrol, last year five people died and 246 were injured during the July Fourth holiday period across the state. (The 2008 July Fourth holiday began at 6 p.m. Thursday and ends at midnight Sunday.)

This year the Highway Patrol will have an increased presence of troopers on the interstates and major four-lane highways throughout North Carolina.
