Town of Chesnee, SC

Chesnee, South CarolinaSep 02, 20100 Comments

While the location is most frequently set up entering Chesnee on 221 from North Carolina, it is not uncommon to see an officer sitting in various locations throughout the town. In the later hours of the evening, there will often be someone sitting in the 25 mph posted speed zone as people are exiting Chesnee heading North on 221 towards North Carolina. This tiny community is located a few miles inside the state of SC, and Highway 221is a
major route between Spartanburg SC and many North Carolina Communities. We usually see someone pulled over everytime we go through this little town.

Wide hwy entering city limits. Speed limit rapidly descends from 45mph to 25mph…signs not very visible…officer sitting right by 25mph sign. Same condition at both ends of town. Even if you immediately try to slow down when spotting the sign, it is nearly impossible to get down to 25 before the officer motions you over to the side of the road. They seemed to be targeting out-of-state cars. We were 10 mph over the limit and the fine is $155.00 (although they call it a "bond forfeiture" on the citation) Of course you have the option of contesting it in person at a court appearance at 5:00p.m. one week later.

Approaching Chesnee, SC from the south on Highway 221 the speed drops from 55 to 45 to 35 very quickly although the road is 4 lanes wide with a large turning lane between them. As you start down a hill toward town, there will be a funeral home on the right and the limit has already dropped to 35. The officers hide on either the left or side of the road and can be found there at nearly any time of day or night. They exploit the fact that the limit has changed so quickly with the signs noting the speed being nearly invisible. The road is still wide and with very little traffic leading you to feel the limit is still 45-55.
