Happy Fourth of July! This is a time where many will gather with friends and family to celebrate America’s Independence. There will be food, fireworks, and, unfortunately for South Carolinians, travel.
Recently, South Carolina’s roadways were ranked the 6th deadliest in the nation. Due to the holiday, there will be an even larger amount of traffic on our already congested and deteriorated roads. This will increase the dangers that you and your family face when traveling, and we urge you to use caution, practice safe driving techniques, and stay alert.
Once you make it to your destination, consider striking up a conversation about the state of road and infrastructure funding in South Carolina. The more we educate those around us, the more voices we add to the call for long-term, sustainable road legislation.
