Drunk Driving Charges Archives

Do drivers have to take field sobriety tests in South Carolina?

You're driving home after a night out with some close friends. You had a couple of drinks, but you're confident in your ability to drive safely. You're well on your way when suddenly the car in front of you slams on their brakes. You immediately brake and you quickly switch lanes to avoid a crash.

Can you receive a DUI if your BAC is below the legal limit?

In South Carolina, like in most other states, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. While this limit applies to most motorists, you may wonder whether it is possible to receive DUI charges if your BAC is beneath it. In most circumstances, this outcome is unlikely to happen. Yet, if you are under age 21, or if you have a commercial driver's license (CDL), you can receive DUI charges with a BAC far lower than the legal limit.

Traffic fatality statistics: A mixed bag for South Carolina

We all have preconceived notions about drivers in other states. For example, many of us assume motorists in Montana are all speed demons, or that drivers in the northeast are all hyper-aggressive. However, most of these notions are rooted in stereotypes rather than fact.

Police tactics used to stop drunk drivers in their tracks

Just about everyone knows that drunk driving is against the law in South Carolina. What some people might not realize is that this state uses a multifaceted approach to help stop drunk drivers in their tracks. The police tactics are often the ones that get drunk drivers off the roads, while the judicial system works to issue punishments and to keep drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel again.
