Going through the town of Olanta

Olanta, South CarolinaApr 11, 20101 Comments

Speed limit is 35 through town and the cops are Always present – sometimes in an unmarked car (which is who pulled me over on my birthday last year!).

Go 1 mile Under the speed limit. The aggravation goes away after the 2 minute ride through Olanta. I went to court to try to fight it and lost. The judge is the town Sheriff and he sits behind a desk made of exposed plywood. This town needed my $, that’s for sure.

When coming into Olanta from the beach area the posted signs are 55 then 45 followed by two seperate 35mph signs which are about 100 yds or so apart. The cops park just before the second 35mph sign so if your not from the area you could possibly think that your still in the 45 zone like I did. i've never been stopped by such an unprofessional person as the cop that stopped me. Didnt tell me to slow down or be careful..just where i could pay the ticket. I was going to argue the confusing signage but looked at my ticket and realized it was the Chief of Police!!
