Did the police have reasonable suspicion to stop you for a DUI?

Imagine driving home after enjoying your usual end-of-the-work-week Friday Happy Hour when a Greenville police officer pulls you over only a few blocks from your destination. As the officer approaches your vehicle, you go over in your mind what you were doing just before you saw the lights in your rearview mirror. You were not speeding, your tags are current and you were not swerving. Why did the police officer stop you? Did he have reasonable cause?

Drowsy drivers can cause crashes that leave you severely injured

There's a certain level of risk involved any time you get into a motor vehicle, whether you're driving or riding as a passenger. Certain factors can increase that risk. Inclement weather, for example, could make it more likely for you to experience a crash and sustain serious injuries. Decisions by you or another driver can create additional risk on the road.

Bringing medical marijuana to South Carolina is a federal offense

Most people turn to medical marijuana as a last resort. Some of the people who use marijuana for debilitating conditions may have tried and not responded to traditional therapies or medications.

For example, a cashier that pockets a few cents during every transaction is embezzling from the store he or she works for.

It’s important to know the top causes of truck accidents

As you travel the roads of South Carolina, and around the country, it's safe to assume that you will be in close proximity to large commercial trucks. These hulking vehicles tend to intimidate drivers of smaller cars on the road due to their size alone, and the knowledge that when there's an accident with a huge truck, the smaller car usually fares worse in terms of damage.

Possession of more than an ounce of marijuana in SC can cost you

South Carolina takes drug offenses very seriously. In fact, even marijuana, which is quickly being legalized around the country, carries stiff penalties. More people than ever are questioning the prohibition of marijuana, seeing it as comparable to alcohol. Public opinion won't matter to law enforcement or the courts if you're caught with marijuana, especially if you have more than an ounce in your possession.

4 injuries to look for after a dog bite

You were out on a bike ride, just like any other day. Today was different, though. A neighborhood pet got loose, and you saw it walking ahead of you on the road. You knew the dog, so you didn't think anything of approaching it on your bicycle. Suddenly, it barred its fangs and attacked.
