Myrtle Beach is full of people out to have fun and enjoy a good time, but some unwisely choose to get behind the wheel of a car after an evening at a club or bar. Drunk driving charges can be quite common even if they can carry severe penalties. On May 17, music star Mac Miller was arrested on drunk driving charges in California after he reportedly ran into a utility pole in the San Fernando Valley before driving away.
Driving on South Carolina streets and roads can be challenging at times, especially at the height of vacation season. Sadly, car crashes are all too frequent occurrences. While some are minor fender-benders, others can result in catastrophic injuries with lasting consequences.
Myrtle Beach drivers take their lives in their hands every time they get behind the wheel. One coalition is bringing together government officials, industry leaders and safety advocates in order to reduce the risks of driving and cut roadway fatalities. The Road to Zero Coalition is so named because the coalition aims to achieve the goal of zero traffic deaths in the United States by the year 2050.
