The North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program is kicking off this year’s ‘Speed A Little. Lose A Lot.’ campaign at Fort Bragg in Cumberland County, one of the top five most populous counties for crashes, to help address this issue.

Keynote speakers will include:
Justin O. Mitchel: Deputy to the Garrison Commander,
Mark Ezzell: GHSP Director,
Sgt. Juan Figuereo, Division Artillery, 82nd Airborne Division, and Col. Larry Dewey, Fort Bragg Director of Emergency Services.

The ‘Speed A Little. Lose A Lot.’ campaign complements the NC Vision Zero initiative, which aims to save lives on North Carolina roadways. The goal is to reach zero traffic-related fatalities through coordinated agency-to-agency efforts that help reduce risky driving behaviors by changing the overall traffic safety culture. No loss of life is acceptable.

Media must rally at the All American Visitor Center: 3550 All American Freeway, no later than 10 a.m. and must RSVP to: FortBraggPublicAffairs@gmail.com no later than 8 a.m. on Friday, April 12.

For other inquiries contact The Governor’s Highway Safety Program Communications Specialist Miracle King at (919) 814-3657 or miracleking@ncdot.gov.
