North Augusta, South Carolina Speed Traps
Police Officers will park their vehicles out of sight, exit their vehicles, and hide by standing behind the palm trees that are in the median. They will use hand held radar units held against the trees and when unsuspecting motorists are coming down the hill toward the Georgia State Line, the police will jump out from behind the trees with radar in hand and flag the motorist down. In some incidence almost causing accidents.
Hidden Police Cars, with Radar
