South Carolina aims to reduce SC traffic fatalities to zero
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina is setting a goal of reducing the number of traffic fatalities to zero.
And on Wednesday, the Department of Public Safety and the Department of Transportation are holding events in four cities to announce a team of 24 Highway Patrol troopers who will work toward that goal.
The team, called the Target Zero Team, will focus on the three main violations that lead to highway fatalities – not using seat belts, drunken driving and speeding.
The Target Zero team is being introduced at events in Columbia, Charleston, Greenville and Myrtle Beach.
