Westminster, South Carolina Speed Traps
At the South Carolina Highway 11/South Carolina Highway 24 (West-Oak Highway) interchange SCHP sets on the shoulder at the end of the overpass operating radar eastbound the speed limit changes in a curve from 55 to 45 and before you have a chance to slow down SCHP has you already, also SCHP sets under the overpass in the shade where you can’t see them operating radar northbound and southbound.
On South Carolina State Highway 11 the Speed Limits Drops from 55 to 45 as you enter a curve going Northbound near Ridgecrest Road (S-37-177) and as you top a hill going Southbound near Richland Road (S-37-13) SCHP sets in front of Parkway Campers where they are hidden from view due to curves traveling Northbound and Southbound. You want see the SCHP until you exit the curve then it’s too late.
The entire city of Westminster is a speed trap. Beware as you enter the city from the west on Route 76, as the speed limit drops to 25mph within a few hundred yards. The same occurs when entering the city limits from the west. City police hide out on the main drag between the BP station at the junction of 76 and the Townville road and the western edge of town, where the route forks toward Clayton, Georgia and Toccoa, Georgia. Police patrolmen will follow a driver closely until given a reason to pull them over. I have been pulled over there twice, and other members of my family have as well.
