Summerton, South Carolina Speed Traps
Summerton Police Department pulls folks over at 79 and over. I travel up and down the I-95 corridor and they constantly are pulling folks over. Summerton PD and Santee PD are the only departments that are writing traffic tickets for speeding. There are some sheriffs office units running drug interdiction but that is to be expected. Summerton PD expects its officers to write a lot of tickets. The town of Summerton is about 1000 people and though some portions are annexed. I-95 goes around the town not through it. The police department is not accredited.
Cop sits in a ditch in the median where he is barely visible by brush. They will give you a ticket for 79/70– that’s two points on your license. Summerton is hard up; drive with caution.
I guess the" town" of Summerton needs this $133.00 more than i do! The cop even gave me an envelope to send it in. What a rip off – I was stopped for going 54 in a 40. Beware coming off I95. He told me to "Please Drive Safely" as if this was a residential area or something. Beware!!
Be careful from Manning exit 119 on thru to Santee Bridge when travelling South, or from the Santee Bridge to exit 199 going North.
Local police sit in the median at 108 and beside the on ramp north bound, facing oncoming north bound traffic. Big fines
