Department Of Public Safety Issues Eclipse Tips

posted by 560 WVOC-AM -

The once in a lifetime total solar eclipse is now less than two weeks away and authorities believe the event may draw as many as a million extra visitors to South Carolina. That's also going to mean traffic problems. 

The Department of Public Safety is predicting congestion and travel delays along highways like I-26. The path of the phenomenon will run from Greenville to Columbia to Charleston along that stretch of interstate. 

Experts are warning everyone wanting to view the event to wear special protective glasses but state troopers are warning motorists not to wear them while driving. Experts advise pulling over, or exiting the bigger roadways completely for safety. 

When it starts to go dark, don't stop on the highway. That's illegal and can get you a ticket.
