Law enforcement agencies in South Carolina are set to participate in a week-long campaign designed to get speeders to slow down.

Operation Southern Slow Down will be in effect from July 17-23.  Summer months are considered to be some of the deadliest on the highways as more people are traveling while students are out of school.

In addition to those traveling over the speed limit, law enforcement officials will also be looking for aggressive drivers during Operation Southern Slow Down.

Over 500 people have already lost their lives on South Carolina roads this year.  Remember to buckle up and watch your speed!
