To: Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Legislators were warned when they passed the 2017 compromise, the first increase in 30 years, that the 12-cents per gallon hike and other vehicle fees weren’t enough to fix the state’s entire road system, the nation’s fourth largest, and they are now realizing that was true.

The item I've highlighted above is the biggest problem South Carolina is facing.

South Carolina is ranked #23 among U.S. states by population, and #40 by land area. If they rank #4 in roadway miles, then either the state has more roads than they need or the state DOT is responsible for a lot of roads that should come under local or county jurisdiction.

SCDOT does a horrible job with the roads in this state.
