Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department staged a middle-of-the-night traffic checkpoint in the 3300 block of North Tryon Street and drunk drivers weren’t the top offenders caught in the act.
It was people driving without a license, auto insurance and proper vehicle inspections. More than a dozen were caught driving with a suspended license.
However, the far more interesting fact is that three motorists were stopped for driving around with their children unsecured – between 11 p.m. and 3:30 a.m.
Twenty one officers at the event from CMPD, the Alcohol Beverage Commission and the Cornelius Police Department.
Here’s the tally:
Driving while intoxicated-2
Child safety seat violation-3
Other traffic charges-3
