Any time someone is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, they may face a number of roadblocks as they try to move forward in life. Losing driving privileges, paying fines and even spending time in prison are just some of the consequences associated with DUI charges. For some, however, these allegations can deal an especially devastating blow. For example, celebrities may have an especially hard time when charged with driving drunk because of the high level of attention they receive.
You should realize that South Carolina takes driving under the influence very seriously. If you are pulled over under the suspicion of drunk driving, you can expect to go through some field tests and be asked to take a blood alcohol content test. Whether you pass or fail depends largely on how much you have drank and the level of alcohol remaining in your system. Sometimes, you may not feel affected by the alcohol but your level will be above the legally allowed amount.
Construction is an important job, but it is one that comes with a few risks and hazards for the men and women who work in this industry. Keeping South Carolina construction workers as safe as possible should be a priority for all employers and site managers, but unfortunately, many ignore the prevalence of falls on job sites. Falls from heights are one of the leading reasons for construction site injuries and the leading cause of fatalities.
South Carolina residents often hear stories of child abuse, or about instances of domestic violence that involve one partner causing harm to another. However, it is not every day that the news shares stories about parental abuse, which occurs when teens act out violently against their parents or guardians. Though there may be several factors that explain lack of awareness, more often than not, it is because parental abuse is so unacknowledged that many parents do not recognize it, even when it happens to them.
