If you're one of many motorcycle enthusiasts in South Carolina or the surrounding regions, you might mark your calendar every year the minute you find out the dates of the annual Myrtle Beach Bike Week Spring Rally. This year's rally is just around the bend, so it's a good time to start getting ready if you're planning to attend. Getting together with hundreds of other bikers, enjoying the beach and taking time off for rest and relaxation are some of the reasons many people look forward to bike week.
Like many South Carolina parents, the thought of divorcing your spouse may fill you with concern about what will happen to your children. You may have heard stories about painful custody battles or read about parents who lost custody and had to settle for a few scheduled visitation hours throughout the month.
When you first spoke with your children regarding your plans to divorce, they may have expressed sadness, confusion, worry or anger. Then again, if they were already aware that you and your spouse have had marital problems for a long time, your news may not have come as a big surprise. Even if they logically assumed you might divorce at some point, they will still need your support to come to terms with the situation and adapt to a new family lifestyle.
Estate planning is a beneficial step for all South Carolina residents. Having appropriate plans in place is a good idea for everyone, regardless of income level and assets.

South Carolina traffic authorities could design a field sobriety test around the title of one that already exists: horizontal gaze nystagmus. Just trying to spell or pronounce such a thing is a challenge. The problem is that you could be completely sober and stutter or have trouble trying to enunciate or correctly spell those words. On a much more serious note, that's also the problem with many existing field sobriety tests; completely sober people may have trouble performing some of the tasks, which can lead to criminal charges.
You've seen them in movies and on television shows. Those little boxes police officers have people blow into when they suspect that they are driving under the influence of alcohol. South Carolina uses them, along with other states across the country. When asked to submit to a Breathalyzer, do you have to do it?
Every day, millions of drivers in the United States set out on their individual journeys across highways and city streets. Considering the number of people who spend a portion of each day on the road, the fact that car accidents happen daily may come as no surprise.
Aside from being the number one destination for many vacationers, South Carolina doesn't win very many high rankings. That may be why the latest report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may not be welcome news to many across the state. It seems that South Carolina has won a distinction it really doesn't want.
In Myrtle Beach, there are a high number of pedestrians walking at any given time. It is the responsibility of all motorists to drive safely while in the vicinity of a person walking, yet pedestrian accidents happen all the time.
