Right now at The RBC Heritage golf tournament, seasoned golfers are aiming for the hole, looking for a big win. But on their commute to and from the course, it’s a different story.
Driving on South Carolina highways is like playing pothole golf, but the object of the game is to miss the massive potholes in the road.
To win, your goal is to arrive home safely without major damage to your car or threat to your life.
At the end of the day, the situations with our failing roads is no game. 975 people died on our highways in 2016. Drivers are shelling out thousands in repairs to their cars.
The problem extends even further than that. In a new Winthrop poll, 62% of South Carolinians responded that they feel our road system has failed to keep up with the rate our state is growing.
So why is the SC Senate not taking this seriously? They’ve been enjoying spring break and warm weather while you venture out on our dangerous highways another day.
Demand they pass a solution to fund road repair and maintenance. Demand they make you a priority.
