Conway, South Carolina Speed Traps
The light at this intersection only stays yellow for maybe 3 seconds, and guess what? Cop sitting right there just waiting for the victims!
No speed signs. As one comes over hill there is a 45 mph speed sign and a speed trap. Well known by all the locals; however if new to the area you are clocked coming over the hill while the officer is sitting by the speed sign.
The Speed Limit going over the bridge is 25 and the steep grade makes it hard to maintain speed.
To the left of the bridge leaving coway is depot road and the police back in the road to catch speeders coming off of the bridge.
There is a 50 mph sign shortly after the bridge but it is after depot road.
traveling through the fast food stretch towards the beach (which is extremely congested) is 45 mph. Right past that around a curve in the tree’s is a 35 mph sign. The next clearly visible speed limit sign is right after you see the local police car.
As soon as your on the bridge crossing over the Wacamaw River, SLOW DOWN!! This is a major speed trap in the area. You may see police cars or police motorcycles or both. They may be setting in the median or along side the road. If your speeding while still on the bridge, its too late. Actually all of 501 to the beach is polluted with police but this is the worst and most heavily patrolled.
