It’s the next phase in the Target Zero Campaign, troopers are ramping up patrols in consistently high crash fatality areas across South Carolina.
The Highway Patrol is working with the Department of Public Safety and the SC Department of Transportation to fund 24 additional patrol positions. Troopers will concentrate on enforcement in the areas where troopers see a lot of drunken driving, distracted driving and speeding and drivers not wearing a seatbelt.
These areas include:
Greenville County, US 25 Whitehorse Rd., beginning at SC 291 Augusta Road and ending at South 782 Lily St. There have been 2530 crashes there and 16 fatalities.
