Piedmont, SC - I-85 near River Road Site of Crash with Injuries

According to statistics on traffic accidents kept by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, 741 people have died on the state’s roads this year. That means that hundreds of men, women, and children will never again be able to visit their homes, families, schools, places of employment, or social circles. There have been many more injuries. Of the 505 people who died, 263 were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crashes that took their lives despite having access to them.

Justice has not been done when individuals who were not at fault in a serious traffic accident must bear the repercussions. This is particularly true when you take into account how many of these collisions could have been avoided if motorists had been a little bit more cautious. Traffic laws and safety regulations help to ensure that individuals at fault are also held accountable, even though not every driver takes their duty to the road as seriously as they should.
