A drunk driving public awareness
campaign, which the Governor's
Highway Safety Commission will
implement soon, coincides with a 16
percent increase in DWI arrests for
the first nine months of 1986.
The plan is designed to alert North
Carolinians to the dangers of drunk
driving and to the personal conse
quences of those arrested for DWI,
said Roger Wiggs, commission
"We've been planning this for
about a year." he said. "It is not in
response to the increase in DWI
arrests, but we have looked at those
reports, and they should be effective
to our campaign."
Gov. Jim Martin will announce
the details of the campaign in a Nov.
24 press conference. The campaign

8-1 Monday night to give the devel

project an extension because of
pending court litigation.
Construction of the $19 million
hotel, shopping, retail and parking
project must now start within 120
days after the project's closing date,
June 30, 1987, or six months after

Each member of the acquisitions
and book collections staff has a
counterpart at Duke and N.C. State
libraries. Employees of the three
library systems work closely to
synchronize their systems, avoiding
the duplication of large collections.
"Duke, State and UNC meet four
times a year, and most of the staff
keeps in constant contact with their
'staff doubles' at the other schools,"

All UNC libraries operate on their
ow n sets of hours and have their own
circulation policies. Davis and the
Undergraduate Library have a stu
dent loan period of one month, and
includes a proposal to lower the legal
minimum blood alcohol content
from 0.10 to 0.08, said Tim Pittman,
the governor's press secretary.
"The governor is going to declare
war on drunk driving," Wiggs said.
John Lacey, program manager for
the N.C. Center for Highway Safety
Research, agreed with the proposal
to lower the alcohol percentage.
"The evidence is pretty clear that at
0.08 the driver is impaired," he said.
"It seems to be a rational plan to
lower the legal limit."
Since the 1983 Safe Roads Act
took effect, the number of highway
patrol DWI arrests dropped from
50,639 in 1982 to its lowest 37,517
in 1985. However, highway patrol
statistics show an increase from
2,904 arrests in September 1985 to
3,637 arrests in September 1986.
A pretrial hearing on the Rosem
ary Square case (Cheape, et. al.
versus the town of Chapel Hill) is
set for Nov. 17.
The plaintiffs charge that the town
is using public funds to subsidize
private enterprise. They also say the
project will worsen traffic conges
tion, create air and noise problems
and bring undesirable people into
The case, filed Aug. 27, was
brought by 16 Chapel Hill residents
and named the developer, Mayor
James Wallace, and all eight town
council members as defendants.
Several weeks after the suit was
filed, the developers requested that
it be dropped for insubstantial

Sometimes students can find
acceptable replacements for lost
volumes that cost less than the

times the library must purchase an

the standard price for one volume.
N.C. Highway Patrol Capt.
Richard Jenkins said tlv patrol,
which historically makes about 55
percent of all DWI arrests, is
"continually involved in an ongoing
concern to remove the DWI person
off the road."
"We hope that people will do like
they did when the Safe Roads Act
was passed and cooperate with the
law voluntarily," Jenkins said. "I
guess people tend to forget over

those arrested for DWI, required jail

to check randomly for drunk drivers.

since raised to 21 on Sept. 1.

Government professor, said in a
telephone interview Tuesday.

Although the highway patrol is
reporting more DWI arrests, the
research center reports that statewide
percentages for alcohol-related
crashes are still close to the lower
percentages immediately after pas
sage of the act.
"I think that lower gas prices and
more people on the road probably
account for the increase in DWI
arrests instead of the law losing its
effect," Lacey said.
"1 think the campaign that the
governor is planning is a good idea
and could help reduce the number
of DWI drivers out there," he said.
"Hopefully, it will help raise public
consciousness to the dangers of
drunk driving. It's timely for them
to do this."

"The earliest possible construction

But, Morrow said, the outcome
of the litigation would probably be
known within one year.
