Law enforcement in South Carolina are preparing for their week-long campaign to slow down drivers.  Operation Southern Slow Down will take effect on Sunday, July 17th, and run through Saturday, July 23rd.

Summer months are some of the deadliest months on the highways, due to the amount of travel and students out of school.

During this week-long campaign, officers will be looking for those traveling over the speed limit.  But, they will also be on the lookout for aggressive drivers.

Unfortunately, in South Carolina, over 500 people have lost their lives on the road in the state this year.  Buckle up, watch your speed, and drive alert.
