Last month, the South Carolina Highway Patrol issued more than 1,500 tickets and warnings to aggressive drivers along just two Horry County roads over a three-day period.
The Myrtle Beach Sun News reports the tickets and warnings were issued as part of the state Department o Public Safety’s three-day “Stop Aggressive Driving” campaign, which ran from April 27-29 and focused U.S. Highways 501 and 1.
Troopers reported they wrote 793 tickets and issued 726 warnings for violations ranging from driving under suspension to speeding, not wearing a seat belt, operating an uninsured vehicle, and driver license and vehicle license violations.
The newspaper reports troopers also tallied 12 drug violations and 27 DUI arrests.
