Charleston, South Carolina Speed Traps
N. Charleston police sit in K-mart parking lot waiting for traffic coming down Antler Rd. Speed limit is only 30 and they know that’s lowballed.
The little cut through that runs beside Lowes/St. Francis hospital that brings you out to Savage Rd (if you crossover you’re heading to Costco). Cops have been known to set up checkpoints there (weird place, but hey…). I have also seen a cop sitting in a Charger off the side of the road with the radar. You wouldn’t think that this would be a trap, but I have seen it numerous of times- so just do the speed limit. I believe the limit is like 25-30mph. It’s been various times of the day- so not worth it.
From Paul Cantrell Blvd- just before the Citadel Mall (or from Sam Rittenburg just after passing the Citadel Mall) on Orleans Rd stands 1 motorcycle cop with the radar and usually 1-2 pursuit cops/motorcycles. They are there at all times of day and very frequent. Speed limit is 30mph- I suggest that you just do the limit b/c they are ALWAYS out there.
When going down Lockwood towards downtown Charleston (passing the Coast Guard base on your right) you will go around a sharp curve to your leFort..they are always sitting there on the left as you go around the turn.
On I-26 east toward Meeting Street, the speed limit drops from 50 to 35. Around the curve, there is usually a cop on a motorcycle on the side.
She pulled me one day and told me that she gets a lot of people every day.
