A Lexington County Sheriff, aiming to make S.C. roads safer, is asking bar owners to take on some responsibility for their intoxicated customers.

The sheriff is encouraging bar owners in three trouble spots in the county to limit the alcohol of drunken customers and arrange for safe transportation to take them home.Lexington County is currently leading the state in traffic fatalities, with a shocking 40 deaths so far this year.

Along with this initiative, deputies plan to increase patrols at trouble spots at S.C. 6 in the Red Bank area and parts of U.S. 1 and U.S. 378 along the South shore of Lake Murray.
