HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - An Horry County council member sounded off on Facebook following reports of reckless drivers.
Council member Al Allen serves District 11 - the Aynor/Galivants Ferry community - in Horry County.
Allen's post on Facebook, reads:
After the recent tragedies we've had on our highways involving some of our area teenagers, along with receiving several calls from concerned citizens and parents, I have asked our County Police Chief to "beef up" patrols and have the HCPD COT team work certain roads in our area looking for speeders and reckless drivers, I can not sit back and allow the careless actions of a few to threaten our entire communities. So parents please warn your teenagers to be mindful of their driving as I know the most of you do. We must all work together in order to put a stop to these unnecessary accidents that have led to such awful tragedies. God Bless you all.
In November, two crashes - one of which was fatal - sparked concern among the community.
