NHTSA recently released the 2019 drunk driving fatality numbers for SC and the nation. South Carolina had 285 drunk driving deaths, down 5 from 2018. We remain 10th highest among all states while being 23rd in population.
While we are glad to see five fewer deaths, we know that is still 285 tragedies that did not need to occur as drunk driving is 100% preventable.
The fight goes on. Thank you for being in it with us.
