BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WTAT-TV) — See something shady on the road? Just dial *HP – that is the reminder coming from South Carolina Highway Patrol.

They say 527 people have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence this year alone.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was part of a candlelight service in Moncks Corner on Tuesday. Families shared stories of victims killed by drunk drivers.

A member of the Linder family was lost back in June because of a drunk driver. “Think about others,” urged Wyteria Linder. “Think about what they can do to others and how they can actually hurt someone else, and feel our pain. Right now, we are going through it. My pain, it hurts every day like it just happened.”

Other families were invited to come and recognize those who have been lost.
