Keep in Mind: South Carolina Traffic Laws

If you’re traveling to ride the scenic roads of South Carolina, there are a few things to keep in mind. Because traffic laws vary from state to state, make sure to read up on any differences so you have an exciting time.

 

There are two major laws to be aware of to keep everyone safe and having fun. First, South Carolina states there can be no open alcoholic beverages in vehicles or in public.
