This weekend marks the end of the 100 Deadly Days of Summer on South Carolina roadways. Fatalities are down (190 this year compared to 203 last year at this time). We want to end the summer on a good note. This weekend, the kickoff of football season will converge with Labor Day travel. Be a team player by helping us keep our roads safe. Please designate a driver if you are planning on tailgating during the big game. And pack an extra supply of patience since traffic will likely be heavier especially surrounding the stadiums Thursday and Saturday. State patrols and law enforcement agencies from South Carolina, Georgia, and North Carolina are teaming up for Hands Across the Border, an enforcement effort focused on preventing impaired driving. The goal is to be a united front in the fight against the deadly crime of DUI.

This past weekend, four pedestrians died on South Carolina roadways; 64 pedestrians have died on South Carolina roads so far this year. It takes pedestrians and motorists both doing their part to stop this deadly trend. Pedestrians can greatly increase their chances of being seen by motorists and avoiding a collision when they wear light or reflective material. Watch this helpful video to see what a difference it makes when you dress to “Be Safe. Be seen.”

Motorists, we need ...your help too. LOOK for pedestrians:
• Drive with your bright headlights on when there is no oncoming traffic;
• Reduce your speed on rural roadways, especially at night;
• Scan ahead and stay alert for unexpected pedestrians on rural roadways.
