Edgefield, South Carolina Speed Traps
Hwy 25 for the most part is very rural 4 lane road with a huge median up to hwy 19. That is the section where most of the speed traps take place.. The hwy is mostly 55 mph…
Starting at the Edgefield county line at Sweetwater rd..To hwy 19…And also all the way to Johnston town limits ..Both Edgefield County SC and the SC highway patrol both use it to make easy money. For just minor infractions .Like 6 over the limit in such a rural area , and the road for the most part is the size of an Interstate.. I have lived all over South Carolina this is the worst speed trap area I have ever seen in my 55 years of living .
As you enter Edgefield County from Greenwood County, At about mile marker 4 the speed limit drops from 55 to 45 then about mile marker 6 to 35. At mile marker 9 it goes back up to 45 right past the intersection, and then to 55 between mile marker 10 and 11. I was right at the 45 mile an hour sign going 44 when the deputy flashed his light passing me on the other side of the road on this 2 lane highway. he claimed I was going 55 in a 35, but changed his tune reducing it to a 44 in a 35. Watch out for this intersection.
