Sheriff urges driver safety over Memorial Day weekend

Granville County Sheriff Charles R. Noblin, Jr. reminds everyone to “Drive Smart” this holiday weekend.


“Memorial Day weekend is one of the most dangerous driving weekends of the year,” Sheriff Noblin noted. “We encourage all of our residents to do their part to save lives on our highways.”


The National Sheriff’s Association has partnered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and award-winning country music performer Toby Keith in the release of a public service announcement encouraging driving safety. This  message offers a reminder to:


  • * Buckle up;
  • * Slow down;
  • * Drive sober; and
  • * Focus on driving.


“I would also like to remind all drivers to practice the ‘Golden Rule’ when driving,” Sheriff Noblin added. “Be courteous and tolerant of other drivers. Let’s make this Memorial Day weekend a safe one on our roads.”
