Drunk driving is a preventable offense

When it comes to drunk driving in South Carolina, few people would disagree that it is a preventable offense.

Even so, both of these tactics are often easier said than done.

Do I have to submit to a roadside test?

Drivers in South Carolina who are pulled over for suspicion of driving while intoxicated may find themselves in a dilemma when asked if they are willing to take a roadside breathalyzer test.
