Well if they would slow the speeding down, maybe all the wrecks would be less.


I agree, change the speed limit coming into town and enforce it! On 70 speed needs to be changed around McCabe road.

Not sure why the out of towners are in a hurry to get here.

If I was in law enforcement and needed to hit my quota I would be sitting down by the ford dealership.


Speed limit can be a problem when we have holidays. I think the rain had a lot too do with this wreck. It puddles really bad around that area.


Do you honestly believe every vehicle entering Morehead City is an out of town visitor? How many locals work in Havelock, New Bern, and so on? I am not sure they (that have to drive that route everyday) would be happy about the change in the speed limit.

Look at how many locals are driving down the road taking pictures to post on social media.

While I am not happy about the opening of our short term rentals and beaches to those that are vacationing without some type of limit or restriction, many locals are not/have not followed the recommendations anyway.

Yes our numbers have stayed low and they most likely will rise, but can we only blame those coming in? What about the locals that have “vacationed” in other areas that recently opened and have now returned? Everyone should try to look at the whole picture and not try to find the easiest out.
