Horry County police, traffic experts caution against summertime road rage

Summertime usually means an increase of vacations and travel time, which leads to more vehicles on the road -- leading to more road rage incidents.

Horry County police have responded to 50 road rage reports since January 13 and 10 since May 1, according to Lt. Raul Denis. Most reports are generated through the county’s 911 center and police usually don’t have a complainant to meet with, Denis said. Most of the complaints are classified as reckless driving or even driving under the influence.
