A recent research study found that about one person is killed each day in a DUI-related crash in South Carolina. The most current statistics showed that more than 350 people were killed in the Palmetto State in 2010. This is a disturbing trend as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released new data which showed that, nationally, traffic fatalities actually dropped 14 percent from 2006 to 2010 to 1,080. From this total figure, more than 340 of those deaths were caused by at least one driver with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 or more. In South Carolina, however, more than 70 percent of the state’s drunk driving fatalities were caused by at least one driver with an alcohol level of 0.15 or more, or approximately twice the “legal limit.”
