Law officers are out in full force in an attempt to help keep roads safe this New Year’s holiday.
The S.C. Highway Patrol is running its Sober or Slammer campaign, which targets drunk driving, through Sunday.
Troopers are patrolling all of the county’s main highways, such as U.S. 521, S.C. 200 and S.C. 9, as well as secondary roads.
Motorists can expect to run into checkpoints today through the weekend, said Lance Cpl. Jeff Gaskin. The Highway Patrol has also established teams of troopers that are specifically targeting drunk drivers.
