Jamestown, South Carolina Speed Traps
Perfect example of a small town that needs the ticket money to pay the salaries of the ticket writers who do nothing but write tickets. Do not speed through this town! If you get a ticket request a jury trial in writing before the trial date. Send it certified mail. Hold out for the jury trial, it’s your only hope.
They drop the speed limit unexpectedly from 55 to 40mph for a single intersection and nail everybody they can. Since they made my citation generic, they are clearly trying to "raise revenue". Police in 2 marked cars without overhead lights lurk in church & convenience store parking lots.
Small town that relies on income from speed traps to pay the towns expenses. Speed traps on both sides of only light on 17A. You can usually talk your way out of a point ticket but the cost is about $300.00
