Rock Hill, South Carolina Speed Traps
I-77 Exits 77 thru 88, North & South Bound.
When exiting off 21 Bypass (Anderson Rd) onto 72 Bypass (Albright Rd), there is a car that sits right in the curve onto 72 bypass. The speed limit drops from 45mph to 35mph quickly. By the time you realize it, you are in the speed trap. They are waiting right in the curve before getting onto 72 bypass. If you are doing 45 you will get stopped. So be careful coming around that curve.
Enforment is typically hidden under bridge where the bridge support mounts in center of interstate. This are is hidden by the concrete barrier in the center of the interstate.
There is a concrete wall separating northbound from southbound lanes. This wall splits briefly into 2 walls to make room for the pillar of the Eden Terrace overpass. Police turn around there, can hide under the overpass and shoot radar at the tail lights of cars going either direction, which have just passed the Eden Terrace Bridge
On I-77, driving through Rock Hill, there is an overpass (lacking on/off ramps) that exists between the 82A/B exits (York, Rock Hill), and the exit for Dave Lyle Boulevard (1.5 miles or so between). If you’re northbound, coming from the Columbia side, you will pass the exit for Dave Lyle Blvd and see, sort of up the hill, an overpass with strange concrete median divider work underneath it. The dividers of the 6-lane highway are extended out to shield the underbelly/framework of the overpass and this makes a supreme hiding spot for all patrol cars and motorcycles. If you are southbound, coming from the Charlotte side, you will pass over the Catawba River bridge, pass the 82A/B exits (York, Rock Hill), go around the turn and will immediately be in view of the overpass (which is Mt. Gallant Rd, and lacks on/off ramps). They are doing a lot of construction on the 82A/B area so the anticipation is yours, when you look back to see if there is anything hiding back up in there. There is a gap of time, off in the distance, when it is possible to see them, and also, remember to look for that long antenna that is common on motorcycles. I�ve been had 3 times, and saw a trooper turn and pull through, getting into position, yesterday.
