AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW) -- South Carolina Highway Patrol is advising drivers to exercise patience if traveling on roads this Fourth of July.

AAA expects over 500,000 cars to be on South Carolina roads throughout this weekend and that means more wrecks.

"Last year we had 10 fatalities in the state during Fourth of July," said Lance Corporal Judd Jones with South Carolina Highway Patrol, "Our goal this year is target zero. But we can't do that alone."

Highway patrol says they will have extra troopers on the road throughout the weekend but particular at peak times; the evening of July 3, the morning of July Fourth and all day July 6.

They advise using caution and having extra patience, knowing that getting to your destination may take you a little longer than usual.
