Hwy 76 west out of Marion
Traveling through Marion, SC on hwy 76, on a Sunday morning at approximately 8:00 am going to work in Hartsville, SC. I was the only auto on the road that morning except for a white SUV, unmarked of course, that was following me all the way through town. I was going through town, stopping at every light and as I was going out of town headed west on hwy 76, I was in a 35 mph zone, I could see the 45 mph sign coming up so I speeded up to 48 mph as I passed the sign. The white SUV, unmarked of course, turned on the blue light and pulled me over. The plain clothes officer said I was speeding 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. So I said “I could see the 45 mph sign so I speeded up”. The plain clothes officer informed me that “It is not 45 mph until you get to the sign”. So I contacted the towns attorney on Monday, naturally I am an out of state driver, and told him what had happen. Long story short, $280.00 dollars later, the speeding ticket was taken care of.
