Lexington, South Carolina Speed Traps
Lexington County sheriff deputy hides around curve in road on the east bound lane running radar or laser. There seems to be a major crack down on speeding in Lexington county. Also a new crop of state troopers just hit the roads in South Carolina.
Lexington County sheriffs department positions observers on overpass clocking traffic and having multiple police cars and trucks pull over citizens. Observed them today just before noon on Thanksgiving. Nice huh? The state troopers use the same spot and technique also.
He sits at the 55 speed sign which is hidden by hill and curve– if you are doing 45 and speed up before the 55 sign–you are red meat.
SC Highway Patrol takes advantage of the steep hills in this location, in both directions. As the speed decreases eastbound from 70 to 60 just before mm61, HP hides just past the breach of the hill to catch drivers who didn’t reduce speed and/or are letting the decline speed them up.
Additionally, HP and Lexington County often run radar checks from the overpass at mm63 (Broad River Rd, the border of the county) with teams of cars waiting on the ramp to pull over drivers going westbound into Lexington County.
Usually just 2 sometimes more park in the abandoned Hardees on number6 next to the Shell gas station. keep your eyes peeled cause you can not seem them.
