Greenville police warn drivers against reckless driving

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Icy roads were treated early, but driving conditions are keeping police busy. In the past three days, they’ve received more than 250 calls for service.

The roads continue to freeze and it’s leaving drivers inching down the roadways. With drivers on the roads, Greenville Police are boosting their patrols in an effort to keep drivers safe.

By Thursday night, police have responded to 16 accidents in Greenville.

Police say they’re thankful for a small number of accidents, but Lieutenant Richard Allsbrook says some people are driving recklessly and that’s something police won’t tolerate.

“You don’t want to create a hazard for yourself,” said Lieutenant Allsbrook. “What starts out to be fun and everybody’s having a good time, all it takes is for one thing to go wrong or go bad and all that changes.”

Lieutenant Allsbrook says if drivers are reckless, they will get pulled over and just because there’s snow on the ground, traffic laws still apply.

Several drivers in Greenville have been cited for reckless driving. If you see someone driving carelessly or dangerously, report it to your local police department.
