Speeding Takes You Nowhere Fast

“Speeding Takes You Nowhere Fast”: Speed Enforcement Is Focus For Southeastern States July 14-20

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety announces that it will join five Southeastern states in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Region 4 for Operation Southern Shield – an increased enforcement effort to reduce speed-related deaths and collisions on the roadways. The campaign will run from July 14th through July 20th.

The states participating include South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee. Operation Southern Shield also has been added as a component to SCDPS’ annual Target Zero (Law Enforcement) Challenge, with local law enforcement agencies across the state participating.

 In 2018, there were 44,810 speed-related collisions on South Carolina roadways, and more than 36 percent of all fatal roadway collisions in South Carolina were speed-related. 

 So far this year, 492 people have died on South Carolina roads, compared to 529 last year. 

Operation Southern Shield was developed by NHTSA Region 4 in 2017 and focuses on the heavy summer travel period when the rate of fatal and injury crashes within the Southeastern United States is higher than any other time of the year.
