Editorial: DUI laws
Placeholder Image
Recently, we interviewed Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews about the dichotomy of doing a good job enforcing the state’s driving under the influence (DUI) laws, but lamenting how badly those laws are flawed. Our decision to interview Matthews about DUI laws came from learning about one particular case which turned out very differently than expected. On Sept. 11, Lowell Nathan Stewart appeared in court to answer for having killed Pine Grove volunteer firefighter DeWitt Peake in January 2013 in a car vs. motorcycle collision.
