SCHP teams up with other states to eliminate drunk driving

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – State and local law enforcement from South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina are participating in the annual multi-state “Hands Across the Border” highway safety awareness events.

South Carolina Highway Patrol says safety is their top priority during the event over the next few days. The Labor Day weekend marks the end of what the SCDPS calls the “100 Deadliest Days of Summer.”

Local agencies work together with other state partners looking for offenders of DUIs, not wearing seat belts, speeding and distracted driving.

“It’s a goal that we all have to buy into. It’s not just law enforcement’s responsibility,” says SC Trooper Bill Rhyne. “It’s not just the public’s responsibility. It’s everybody’s responsibility”

If you see a drunk driver or someone having an issue, you can report it to highway patrol by dialing “STAR HP.”
