Public Safety Officials Give Driving Tips For Solar Eclipse

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) –

South Carolina Public Safety Officials are giving out tips like “Don’t look at the sun while driving.”

Emergency officials say that might seem like common sense, but the August 21 eclipse will be so extraordinary and historic, people might forget even the most basic safety rules.

Transportation officials say they will put messages like “Don’t look up at the sun” on highway signs in an effort to ensure safety of the roadways.

State officials plan to station 160 extra troopers along Interstate 26 and nearby roads during this month’s solar eclipse.
