Just in the past 6 months (as of February 5, 2020), there are 3 fatalities documented on Highway 101 in Beaufort related to vehicle accidents.

I realize there is road construction and improvements on Highway 101 and that they are widening it.

But even before road construction started, this has always been a dangerous road to travel.

March 2, 2020: A major head on two car collision sent three people to the hospital with significant injuries. Again, this happened near Steel Tank Road on 101.

In your opinion, what needs to be done about it?

    I also want to state that it should be a month-to-month thing to provide proof of auto insurance in this state it is a lot of people will go and get their car insured and then turn around and turn their insurance off immediately.

    They should be required by law for everyone to take a state-mandated driver’s Ed course as well as a safety course and crash course and defensive driving to avoid car accidents. Could be a week or two week program and the money can go into recovery repair for hurricane Florence. Anyone recently busted and convicted of a DUI or any offense related should have to take the course in order to regain their license back. that’s what they do in the state of Maryland and that’s what they should require it. As far as other vehicles on the road such as golf carts, and scooters they shouldn’t be allowed on the main highways, and should we require a special license and course as well.
