right after the bridge and before the flashing light HWY 41
6/09/2017 it happened. I was doing the posted speed at the bridge of 55. right down from the bridge is a speed zone of 40 so the cop said after he pulled me over telling me I was doing 56 in a 40. I got a ticket for $180. I was PISSED … i did NOT see any signs … got to my dads in summerville told him the next morning we were going to look for it. Sure enough the zone was covered by trees, the second sign a few hundred feet away I did not see because I was paying attention to the big van headed toward me in the opposite lane. I extended my stay at my dads til Monday to go to the municipal building. The clerk tells me I have to come back on my court day July 5th. I show her the photos of the covered sign and was told she doesn’t know who is responsible for the up keep.. so in the mean time more people are getting tickets. I have photos of it .. and a video my passenger was filming of the van coming in my direction. So bottom line I can pay $237 to have 0 points, $187 and have 4 points or I can pay $87 and 2 points … which is really odd .. but I had the clerk write that on my ticket and make a photo copy of it. Honestly I think it should be dismissed .. the cop was not very nice either. Apparently the forestry is responsible for the tree covering the STATE MANDATED speed zone …. BS .. NEVER will I EVER go to Myrtle Beach again through that town .. first time through Jamestown and LAST time through Jamestown.
