North Charleston, South Carolina Speed Traps
Labor Day Weekend – Multiple South Carolina State Troopers unscrupulously making money to justify their jobs via legal highway robbery by the rest area on I-26 MILE MARKER 204. There were (3) state troopers vehicles in a line waiting to make money off of anyone who had cruise control on who missed the unnecessary drop from 70-to-65 mph. The 4th ST was already cashing in on an unlucky motorist ahead. Note: no vehicles were speeding excessively relative to each other in this area–the troopers were only there to make money.
Be careful, the airport cops are hiding behind every bush with a radar gun or their “opinion” that you are speeding. The speed limit drops quickly from 45 to 40 to 35 to 25 then even to 15 as you roll up to the terminal. Worst of all, when you leave the parking garages, you think you are out of the airport because you are on a 4 lane highway. Nope, still 25 MPH until you are by the Boeing plant, then it is only 40.
The speed trap is located about 1 mile north of the intersection of Palmetto Commerce Pkwy with Ashley Phosphate Road. The police are hiding on the right side of the road if you are traveling north on Palmetto Commerce Pkwy. They have at least three police cars giving tickets. Speed Zone is 35 mph.
All of I 26, the Highway Patrol is nailing everyone. I heard they have a special task force assigned to the interstate and them guys are not playing!!
Speed limit is 35. DO NOT try to go above that. Police will sit on the side of the road at various places through this stretch, and will ticket you for doing so much as 38 in the 35 zone!!!
