I95 anywhere near Ridgeland, SC.
Standard southern small town scam.
Almost humorously stereotypical, except it’s not – it’s corruption and theft.
Ridgeland PD, not SC State Troopers. Near the state line on I95 in southern SC. Most likely looking for out of state plates to pull. Then proceed to lie about your speed and hand you a ticket.
What are you supposed to do? Come all of the way back for your court date? Hire an attorney, all of which charge an exorbitantly high fee to represent you.
Hummmm… You don’t suppose this is coordinated do you? Nah, couldn’t be.
A small town bilking I95 travelers who they know can’t afford the time to return for their kangaroo court date and will either simply pay or hire an attorney.
