North Carolina Highway Patrol officers investigated 1,422 car accidents during the 2009 Labor Day weekend. Twelve people were killed and 903 were injured. Again this year, troopers will be out in force issuing speeding citations and targeting drunk drivers in an effort to reduce the risk of North Carolina car accidents, the reflector.com reports.

As law enforcement and residents prepare for the coming holiday, Hurricane Earl adds wicked weather to an already booked Labor Day weekend. Earl is expected to brush the North Carolina coast as a major hurricane, inviting evacuation plans and hurricane preparedness to the last summer holiday.
According to the North Carolina Department of Crime Control & Public Safety, hurricane-force winds may be possible along the Outer Banks and sounds while tropical storm force winds may be felt as far inland as I-95.”Hopefully this storm will move through the area quickly, so that folks planning to go to our beaches this weekend can still enjoy the long Labor Day weekend,” said Gov. Perdue. “But, above all, we want everyone to be safe.”
