With the introduction of a new month comes a new goal for the Shallotte Police Department—reducing speed.
Starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, the police department was out in force in several areas of Shallotte known for speeding, which in recent months has led to fatal wrecks.
“Our goal is to slow people down,” said Rodney Gause, chief of police.
He warns drivers to adhere to the speed limit.
Areas the police department is particularly focusing on are near Brierwood on N.C. 179 and The Highlands/Cardinal Pointe area.
