We all want to keep our little ones snug and warm when they travel but make sure you keep safety in mind along with comfort. It is not safe to place heavy coats or blankets between your baby and the safety seat harness because this can cause the straps to loosen. The safest way to travel is to place your child in a warm but thinner sweater or jacket for the ride. Parents may always consider placing a blanket over the child’s lap once the child is safely buckled up. #BuckleUpSC #TargetZero
We are digging into our archives this year and sharing some of the fun and interesting photos and facts from our agency’s history. The South Carolina Highway Patrol was created in 1930. This is Patrolman T.P. Brown (later Captain and commander of SCHP) on his motorcycle in October 1930 shortly after SCHP was formed. #tbt

The following are SCDPS calls for service during Winter Storm Grayson. 2017 numbers are included to show a "normal" period for comparison.
From Jan. 3, 6 a.m, through Jan. 4, 6 a.m., SCDPS has worked 916 collisions and assisted 355 motorists in areas of SC that have been impacted by Winter Storm Grayson. Compared to the same time last year, SCHP worked 154 collisions and assisted 61 motorists.
I-95 Update from SCHP: Traffic moving slowly; remains congested in areas due to recurring collisions. Problematic areas are from MM 18-21 & 53-68 NB and SB. HP discourages travel in affected areas as SCDOT continues to clear the roads. Follow HP Real-Time Traffic and DOT 511.
Roads remain hazardous for travel in the coastal areas and along the I-95 corridor. The SC Highway Patrol cautions motorists to stay off the roads in the impacted areas today as SCDOT continues to work to clear the roadways. Call *HP for emergencies.
