Motley Rice Sponsorship: Project Roadblock

Hundreds of lives are tragically cut short each year on South Carolina’s highways because a driver made the reckless decision to drink before getting behind the wheel — and the problem is getting worse.

With 331 lives lost in 2016, an increase of 24 deaths from the previous year, South Carolina ranked above the national average and 6th in the nation for drunk driving deaths, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports. Nationally, for the second year in a row, the numbers also increased, reaching a staggering 10,497 deaths.

Fortunately for all who share the roads, these numbers hopefully can be curbed if drivers make the conscious decision not to drink and drive. That’s why Motley Rice is proud to join WCSC-TV, Charleston’s CBS affiliate, in supporting Project Roadblock, a national campaign with NHTSA, the Ad Council and local TV stations aimed at stopping the rise of drunk driving in its tracks.

When presented with the choice to drink and drive, we ask that you choose instead to save a life.
