Entire Town Limit/Turbeville SC US378 & US 301
Getting off the Interstate, we decided to take the ‘old way’ to Myrtle Beach, SC. As you drive through the Town the beautiful Streetscape is appealing. However, the price you pay is viewing two new Police Cruisers and their flashy blue lights, to relieve you of money. NO State of South Carolina Uniform Traffic Ticket is used, You do not get a ticket for speeding. You get a citation for "Traffic Ordinance’. The fine ranges from $288.00 -$500.00 (apparently $388.00 is the average price), and they are eager to tell you there will be no "point violation" if you just "pay the ticket’. By the way, South Carolina issued speeding ticket revenue has to be shared with the state. "Traffic Citations" are revenue producers in that most if not all of the funds go to –THE TOWN OF TURBEVILLE, SC! Several phone calls finally got me in touch with the "judge’. She reduced my ticket to a little more than half of the $288.88, but was still a kick in the shin. WIS Television has just released an expose` on this town’ pratices (Sept 19, 2013).
