DUI enforcement kicks off this weekend

Columbia, SC -

COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – For five days leading up to Labor Day weekend, the SC Department of Public Safety and local agencies that are members of the department's Law Enforcement Network will participate in the annual "Hands Across the Border" event.

During the safety awareness event taking place from Aug. 29 – Sept. 2, state and local agencies in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia will join together in an impaired driving enforcement initiative that is part of the national "Over the Limit, Under Arrest" campaign.

In South Carolina, it's called "Sober or Slammer!" and focuses on stopping motorists from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
