​​R​ALEIGH – The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The stories below are also featured in NCDOT Now, the department's weekly newscast.

NCDMV Hiring at New Rocky Mount Headquarters

The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles is moving its headquarters and looking to fill jobs. Currently, the headquarters is in Raleigh – but by the end of the year the NCDMV headquarters will be in Rocky Mount. 

Officials recently held two drive-thru job fairs, but people can still apply to work at the new headquarters by going to

Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week

Emergency crews face many dangers when responding to the scenes of a traffic crash or incident. In fact, more than 40 emergency responders have died this year alone while on the scene of incidents nationwide. 

So, as we recognize National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week, we’re reminding drivers to always be alert and be careful.

If you’re behind the wheel:

  • Slow down;

  • Move over; and

  • Be safe.

North Carolina transportation and public safety officials will do their part to keep our emergency crews safe on the roads. But we need everyone else to do their parts, too. 

World Day of Remembrance

Sunday is World Day of Remembrance – remembering the millions killed and injured on the road. This day also remembers the families and friends of those who died. This year, the World Day of Remembrance will be held virtually so we can prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

So please join the Governor’s Highway Safety Program to honor all victims and their families and friends online. Follow NCGHSP on social media for information about how you can get involved.

Remember to always follow the rules of the road and buckle up so everyone arrives to their destinations safely. ​
