State and local law enforcement officers cited 1,937 motorists for driving while impaired during the “Booze it and lose it." The Campaign was called Operation Firecracker, while the campaign only ran from June 29th – July 9th. This is good news for families and everybody else on the road that these criminals are getting removed from the road before any accidents happen. The highest number of DWI citations was Mecklenburg with 107, Wake with 106 and Robeson with 76. This campaign was a good success for the state and local law enforcement. Campaigns like this one will send information throughout NC and will hopefully make people think twice before getting behind the wheel while impaired. In the High Country area, the numbers were not as high with Watauga County North Carolina having 13 DWI citations, Ashe with three, and Avery with eight.
