Rock Hill, South Carolina Speed Traps
Heading down Anderson towards Main Street you’ll veer off Anderson to merge onto main near The Crowbar and the speed shop. There’s a triangular piece of land created by the roads, you’ll be peeling off to the right getting ready to merge. A cop will sit in the middle of the grassy area and pop you as you enter the area. The dumb thing is, his back is turned to main as well as the merge area, where is where *all* the problems occur when those roads meet as well as the real speeding happens.
Heading down Ebinport, away from Blockbuster, there’s normally a cop sitting in the dayschool at the bottom of the hill. Steepest hill in Rock Hill so of course you’re going to gain speed as you roll down the hill. You’ll have to apply a lot of break just to maintain 35mph. So, of course, they wait for gravity to take it’s toll, then make you pay for it.
There is a place on I-77 going north and south where police hide in the middle of the road between the concreate wall and catches speeders. They are in cars or on motorcycles. The speed limit is 60mph here.
Going North bound on I-77, the large overpass before Cherry Road has a speed limit sign on a support structure. A gap in the road separators is created below this, and it gives enough room for a State Patrol to back-into this position and shoot up towards the hill. Typically the State Patrol will wait till the driver the wish to go after has made it to or over the hill, and race towards them to stop them about 1 mile before the Sutton Road exit.
This area is a very dangerous area because going North I-77 goes from 70 to 60. This feels like a crawl and most people keep their speed and stay in the left 2 lanes.
Watch for this overpass, I travel this interstate very often and have seen them camping there.
State Patrol will sit on top of Sutton Road overpass and shoot down into oncoming traffic, namely the left lane. Several other State Patrol and Rock Hill Police will sit on the offramp to Sutton road and make the grab. On one Saturday I saw no less than 10 cars pulled at one time. No joke.
