During this time, police and other law enforcement personnel will be out in full force with increased highway patrols and target enforcement areas. Though there has been a slight decrease in the number of drunk driving accidents in the state, statistics show that drunk drivers are still responsible for at least 40 percent of all fatal car accidents in the state. In fact, information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that in 2012, of the 863 fatal auto accidents that occurred on state roadways, 358 were because of drunk driving. Nationally, about one person dies in a drunk driving accident every 34 minutes during the Labor Day holiday. In 2012, the Labor Day holiday was marred by the deaths of 147 people due to drunk driving accidents. This year, do your part to keep everyone on South Carolina's road safe.
