S.C. law enforcement cracks down on drunken driving

Law enforcement officials in South Carolina are tightening up on drunken driving in the weeks leading up to Labor Day weekend. Last weekend, these extra patrol units took many people to jail during the first weekend of the crackdown.

The new program is called Sober or Slammer and is focusing on reducing DUI and DWI related crashes which are the main cause of traffic fatalities on South Carolina roadways.

The program will run from August 20 to September 6 and a commercial has been airing to let people know about the extra enforcement. As of August 15, there have been 136 fatalities in the 100 days of summer.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a DWI, contact the Charleston DWI defense lawyers of the Steinberg law firm by calling 843-720-2800 today to discuss your legal options.
