RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is rejoining its partners for their annual Fourth of July water safety campaign.

Starting Friday, the agencies will resume their “On the Road, On the Water, Don’t Drink and Drive” campaign. Officers will increase safety enforcement on the waterways, conduct sobriety checkpoints and help spread public awareness to deter impaired operation of vehicles and vessels across the state.

The campaign is coordinated by the commission, the N.C. Highway Patrol and Forensic Tests for Alcohol. It’s supported by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Coast Guard and local police and sheriff’s offices. Non-governmental organizations back the effort include Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
