YORK COUNTY, S.C. —
Eyewitness News saw a preview on Monday of what traffic enforcement will be like on local interstates this week.
With the arrival of the Democratic National Convention, the South Carolina highway patrol has placed extra troopers on Interstate 77 and on Interstate 85 heading into Charlotte.
Troopers were extremely busy Monday for the Labor Day holiday. In York County, they worked in two teams. One team included a half dozen motorcycles stopping speeders on I-77.
Late afternoon Monday, troopers had written more than 70 tickets on I-77 in York County.
Over the holiday weekend, troopers in York County told Channel 9 they wrote an additional 291 tickets and investigated 18 crashes.
Traffic was heavy Monday with vacationers returning home after a three-day weekend, and DNC traffic heading to events in Charlotte.
Troopers will have heavy patrols on local interstates throughout convention week and will also focus on DUI offenses during the afternoon and evening hours.
