Charleston, South Carolina Speed Traps
A cop sits comfortably on a beach chair behind the bushes on the median, near the redcross building with the trunk of his ford open and pointing the laser gun on the west bound traffic communicating with 2 cops one on a bike and another in a ford pull over the speedsters at the I-526 westbound and I-26 merge
Michaux Avenue between Dorchester Rd and International Blvd. Michaux Ave. is slightly curvy and is a little over a mile long. Posted speed limit is 35mph but could be 45mph. On one section of the road if you are coming from Dorchester and going to International you can’t even see the police until you pass them. There is a small trail they like to park on. I know for a fact they use multiple different types of Radar and Laser detection devices. I travel this road about 5 to 10 times a day.
Any time of the night do not speed… I can not stress how important it is not to speed when heading towards ravanel, or leaving. All they do is ride around their looking for people to pull over.
The cops on the bridge are dressed as construction workers. After the "constructions workers" know that you are speeding, they radio in to other cops so they can pull you over.
On the parkway there are little pavenments on the right and left sides (they look like driveways) but you can’t see what’s in that driveway until it’s too late… Also after you pas the West Ashley High School you go over a bridge and there are always cops hiding down in the concrete "ditch"… So be careful… Speed Limit is 55, I always do 60… And at night you can’t see anything, because it’s not lit up, and cops hide in the median behind trees…
