Abbeville, South Carolina Speed Traps
Local yokels patrolling and writing speeding tickets on Hwy 72 which is a nice, wide 4 lane highway with a speed limit of 35 in a town where at any given time there might be 10 cars on the road in the whole town. Bypass this town and spend any money you might spend at their convenience stores, gas stations, etc. passing through Abbeville elsewhere.
Abbeville City constantly patrols Hwy 72 from the City Limits to City limits. They do not care if it is 3 mph too fast, your getting stopped and searched. They love to get you out and check the cars for open beer, roach in the tray ect. ect. Be Carefull in this 4 mile strip.
Highway 72 bypass patrolled by State Troopers hiding in trees between Abbeville and Greenwood SC.
This is undoubtably one of the nations worse speed traps. There is ALWAYS at least one highway patrol vehicle patrolling this 5 mile road. To make matters worse, these highway patrol officers are rude and would like nothing better than the opportunity to throw you on the ground and put a gun to your head…even if you are an 80 year old grandmother! I’m not kidding, be careful!
