Fewer people died on South Carolina roads in 2008 compared to the year before, though the numbers in Lancaster County stayed the same.
The S.C. Highway Patrol reports there were 903 highway fatalities in the state last year, a drop from 1,077 fatalities the year before.
Lance Cpl. Jeff Gaskin said the decrease may be partly due to what troopers believe is an increase in seat-belt usage. He also highlights the Highway Patrol’s continued partnership with other law enforcement groups and the outreach efforts to educate the public on highway-related dangers.
