Driving under the influence (DUI) is illegal in every state, including the state of South Carolina. Unfortunately, South Carolina is one of the worst offenders when it comes to drinking and driving. Our state led the nation in traffic deaths caused by drunk driving in 2013, with 335 deaths caused by drunk driving in that year alone according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This was 44% of all traffic fatalities. The national average is 31%.
