Law enforcement beefing up traffic patrols today

Have you heard? It's Super Bowl Sunday. It's our last chance to indulge in face-stuffing and beer-guzzling before the swimsuit season preparations begin.

If you plan on drinking more than a casual cocktail, also plan to stay where you drink or bring a designated driver. The South Carolina Highway Patrol has already stated it will have checkpoints throughout the area and they will be tough. WMBF also mentions several bars and cab companies are offering "sober rides" to those that need it. Seriously, don't even take the chance. I can't imagine any State Trooper that will be happy working instead of partying on the last great football weekend of the season.
