Vehicle impoundment can happen after a DUI violation in certain states, and South Carolina happens to be one of them. However, your car will not be impounded until after your fourth DUI offense in our state. Fortunately for people accused of drunk driving, most DUI violations are first or second offense, so the vast majority of individuals will be immune from having their vehicles confiscated.
In 2015, video cameras are ubiquitous. This includes dash cams, which are standard issue in police cars in many cities. One in Greenville, South Carolina, captured the extraordinary actions of a woman who has been charged with driving under the influence.
A 26-year-old woman was arrested and accused of being too drunk to drive, in addition to driving into the back of a police sport utility vehicle after losing control of her car. The incident happened during early morning hours on a recent Saturday.
