Wis10 reported that the South Carolina Department of Transportation expects fewer fatalities on the highway for 2010. According to DOT statistics, there have been 755 people killed on South Carolina roads this year. In 2009, there were a total of 851 deaths.
The DOT contributes this lower number to efforts made by the department to improve safety. Additionally, the DOT indicated that more people are wearing seatbelts and car seats regularly.
According to the report, this is only the second time in 47 years that the number of fatalities has been below 800, so please buckle up this holiday season and take care.
