No one should get behind the wheel of a vehicle after a night of drinking. However, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 1.6 percent of adults in South Carolina drove a car while intoxicated within the last 30 days of the initial report. It is frightening to think about how many teens in the state drove while drunk during that period.
Whether you intend to start college or are already on campus, a conviction for driving under the influence can alter your life dramatically. It can also affect your future employment opportunities.
If you are a college student here in South Carolina and you have a car at school, you might have or eventually make friends who do not have their own transportation. Good times together may include some drinking, but remember the warning: Do not drink and drive.
Falls are among the most frequent causes of injuries seen by emergency room personnel. A slip-and-fall can happen anywhere — at a pool or your local supermarket, in your backyard or your neighbor’s kitchen.
While it is true that a car crash can leave you feeling dazed and shaky, there are certain things you must remember to do in the aftermath and certain things you should definitely not do. Your first move will probably be instinctive: Check yourself and everyone else for injuries.
