The South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) has officially launched its anti-drunk-driving campaign titled “Sober or Slammer.” The program aims to crack down on drunk driving, which tends to spike during the busy holiday season as people attend more frequent work and social parties, have more time off from work and school, and tend to consume more alcohol than at other times of the year. According to law enforcement statistics, nearly 22,000 people were arrested for drunk driving last year.
The “Sober or Slammer” campaign begins today (Thursday, December 14th) and people can expect to see a more significant law enforcement presence on our roads and highways for the duration of the campaign.
