RALEIGH — North Carolina state troopers and local police have ticketed thousands of speeders in the past two weeks during spring highway safety campaigns.

The patrol and local authorities last week wrapped up a two-week speed enforcement campaign across North Carolina that resulted in more than 38,000 citations being issued as of April 12. Local police wrote more than 19,000 tickets and troopers wrote more than 18,000.

Troopers also wrote 965 tickets last week during a campaign to target speeders in work zones along major highways.

Authorities say driving too fast is the leading cause of wrecks and highway deaths.
