South Carolina Bill Would Lesson Traffic Violation Penalties

Something in the works on the road that might just mean a break if you drive a little too fast. South Carolina's Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill cutting the penalties for speeding and some other traffic violations.

And, if you take community service, they'd wipe the charges off your record.

It would not cover severe offenses like DUI or reckless driving.

Don't hit the gas just yet. The bill is just out of committee and still has to go through the full legislature and the governor before it's law.

We'll keep you posted.
