According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, if you need to stop your vehicle, whether it is for assistance because something has gone wrong or you need to pull off for other reasons, “move the vehicle to the right side of the road out of the flow of traffic.” “The left side of a divided highway is extremely dangerous.” You should only pull into the left side if your vehicle is disabled and you have no other choice.
