Bridge on 544

Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaMar 05, 20103 Comments

Hwy 544 is only 45 Miles the entire length of the road. Cop’s sit at the bottom of the bridge, mainly on the north side. I have been ticketed once myself. I see people getting pulled over and in some case two cars at a time!

Be careful!

River Oaks Dr. near Carolina Forest Blvd.

Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaJan 16, 20102 Comments

As River Oaks Dr. intersects with Carolina Forest Blvd., the road widens to four lanes and drops suddenly from 45 to 35 speed limit. I always see people getting caught especially during the 5:00 rush hour. Be careful–and if you’re turning onto International/Grissom, beware that speed trap too!

Grissom Parkway near 48th Avenue

Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaAug 18, 20080 Comments

Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach near Carolina Forest. Parkway is 2 lanes in each direction (total 4) and there is a concrete divider in the middle. There are no buildings or residences near this section of the parkway. Parkway speed limit is marked at 45 but the parkway feels like a highway so motorists have to consciously keep their speed down. I set my cruise control to 45 to keep from going over. There is no justification for this speed trap but the police make lots of money on tourists who aren’t paying attention. Note also that this whole area of Carolina Forest has police cruisers camping and waiting for the slightest violation so they can stop you.

Bay Road near State Highway 707

Bay Road is a 35 MPH zone. The adjacent road (Enterprise if 45 and 55 MPH. The enforcement officers will park at a power station. The enforcement is random; however, they will often target this location for several days at a time.

17th South Avenue near State Highway 17 Business

Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaApr 28, 20080 Comments

The section of 17th Ave South between Hwy 15 and Business 17 is 35 mph. City police regulary sit in the foliage with radar, and it only takes a couple of miles over to get pulled. There is a high amount of traffic through this area, and while 35 is not unreasonable, 45 mph speed limit would be safe.
