The mission of the Governor's Highway Safety Program is to promote highway safety awareness and reduce the number of traffic crashes in the state of North Carolina through the planning and execution of safety programs.
The program is responsible for DWI check points, license check points, seatbelt violation, and speed enforcement
The GHSP plans and supports several highway safety initiatives each year. "Click It or Ticket" began in 1993 and has become the national model for an enforcement and education campaign of the same name operated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Since then, the agency has led law enforcement officers and other highway safety advocacy groups in initiatives such as "Booze It & Lose It," "R U Buckled," and "Nuestra Seguridad". In 2007, GHSP launched a new speed campaign, "No Need 2 Speed (NN2S) and " Be Safe Share the Space (BSStS), a commercial motor vehicle safety initiative.
