Marion, South Carolina Speed Traps
Local police sit (hidden) at the point of speed reduction to 35mph in either direction. They clock you at the exact spot of the first speed sign, so being in the process of slowing down is not an option. If you are slowing down, but not quite to 35mph, expect a ticket. With my officer, there wasw no discussion, no eye contact – he just gave me the ticket and threatened me with loss of my license if I did not pay. This is a major highway to Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, and judging by the attitude and activity of the officer -a real financial boost for Marion. Beware.
