Smile, speeders: SC town using I-95 speed cameras

RIDGELAND, S.C. — Motorists zipping along a stretch of Interstate 95 South Carolina may soon find themselves on camera.

The Beaufort Gazette reported Sunday that officials in Ridgeland have inked a five-year deal to set up automated speed cameras in the town. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says it will be the of its kind in South Carolina.

Radar will record a vehicle’s speed, and a camera will snap a photograph of a license plate and driver’s face. Tickets will be mailed, and drivers will be able to view footage online.

This is a speed trap but giving tickets in South Carolina is against the law. The Governor outlawed enforcement cameras. If you get a ticket in the mail DO NOT pay it. It is an illegal speed trap. Most people that get tickets are out of staters like myself. I just send it back with a nice nasty letter. What are they going to do bend my dogtags and send me back to Iraq.
