DPS reduces fees for some wreck reports to comply with FOIA

A state law enforcement agency has reduced fees news organizations must pay for copies of vehicle accident reports after an official in the governor's office said the fees didn't comply with South Carolina's Freedom of Information Act. Until May 16, the Department of Public Safety charged $100 for each section of accident reports produced by a special unit, the Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team. The team uses technology to analyze and reconstruct complex vehicle crashes.
