The GCSO Traffic Unit will be participating in Operation Southern Shield, which begins on Sunday, July 19 through Saturday, July 25.

The operation, led by the South Carolina Office of Highway Safety, is focused on speeding violations to ensure drivers are operating their motor vehicles safely on the roadways.

“Since the pandemic started there have been fewer drivers on the roadways and with less enforcement being conducted this has contributed to a national trend of higher speeds resulting in more speed related crashes involving injury or death,” As the Office of Highway Safety stated.

“It is essential that the people in our county do their job in maintaining safety on our roadways and that means abiding by the traffic laws and sustaining a safe speed while traveling,” said Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis. “We hope that through the cooperation of our community as well as a significant law enforcement presence that the roadways of Greenville County will be the safest in the state and across the nation.”
