Stopping Aggressive Driving
Did you know law-enforcement uses unmarked vehicles to target aggressive drivers? Taxis and other used vehicles are utilized in an aggressive driving program called State Trooper On Patrol (STOP). There are seven districts across South Carolina, each with its own aggressive driving team. A team consists of a supervisor and four troopers. They may also use an aircraft to spot offenders in combination with motorcycles to make the traffic stops. During some holidays, the enforcement has been combined with a media campaign. Law enforcement recognizes the increased danger presented by aggressive drivers. Despite their enforcement efforts, there is currently no aggressive driving law in South Carolina. This means offenders will be charged with a speeding violation. This may result in nominal fines and potential jail time for the most egregious offenders. This is why other states have an enacted aggressive driving laws with more severe penalties.
