Junction of 41-17a

Jamestown, South CarolinaMar 30, 20170 Comments

Coming into town the speed limit drops from 55 to 40. There is only 1 posted speed limit sign prior to the light at the intersection. I was pulled over after coming to a stop at the intersection and making a right to stay on 17a. If you slow down to make that turn (let alone stop like I did), you will be well under 40. I Got cited for 60 in a 40. After turning right to stay on 17a there are two posted signs for 40MPH, before going back up to 55mph. It seems they just add their PO Box to the citation and expect you to pay (no mention of showing up in court – just how to send payment).

There seems to be plenty of evidence posted now of almost the exact same situation that is common here. If you miss that posted 40 you are guaranteed to get a ticket here. It doesn’t matter if you slow down due to the light (which should still be the intended purpose), you are technically breaking the law.
