Liberty, South Carolina Speed Traps
Outside the city limits, going toward Anderson on US Hwy 178, the speed limit drops from 55 to 45. Not sure why the need for the drop there, but I don’t make the rules. On occasion, there is an officer (either county or HP), who will be at Golden Grove Wesleyan Church or some of the other commercial/public places in that area. I was lucky and got a warning instead of a ticket, but just be aware that sometimes they are there …. and if they are at the church, they will pull out before you even see them (in order to get right behind you)……
Everywhere!!!! Just plain and simple, Liberty has very little crime and plenty of police officers to write tickets, it is their meal tickets for the town income, just added two more officers as well. Regardless of where you are in this town, be aware of quick speed limit changes, they sit regularly on Hwy 178 between the Spinx and the intersection at Hwy 93, probably about 10 different spots along that 2 mile or so route!
Coming from Easley to Liberty, speed limit is 55 mph and drops to 35 mph. Liberty City and sometimes Highway Patrol will sit in the church parking lot, at the H20 Teen Center, and behind the building on the left after passing Ingles.
City officer sits at body shop or church just down the road. Moving in to Liberty, limit goes from 55 to 35. Exiting Liberty, limit goes from 35 to 55 once out of city limits. Officer guns people leaving city once topping hill at bridge.
Entering City limits approaching LHS. Officer sits on side of road out of sight until you round the curve.
