Pittsboro, NC - UNC Chancellor Carol Folt was cited for speeding in Chatham County on New Year's Day.
Folt, 62, was cited for going 76 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone at 3:54 p.m. on Hwy. 64 outside the town of Pittsboro near the Haw River. She was pulled over by Officer P.J. Carroll, Capt. Doug Stuart of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office said. She was traveling with her husband and dogs on their way to go hiking, UNC spokeswoman Karen Moon said.
The records also note that Folt, who took over as UNC chancellor in July, still has a driver's license and vehicle registration from New Hampshire, dating to her days as provost at Dartmouth College. Folt took office Monday, July 1, 2013 as Carolina’s 11th chancellor.
Under North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles regulations, people are supposed to register their vehicles and obtain a state driver's license usually within 30 days of moving to the state.
A court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 6.
