Spartanburg I-85 @ 129 all the way to Duncan Hwy 101

You Can research this online. Wellford city police using unmarked Cars Chargers and SUVs blacked out windows are working state hwy I-85 Starting where you exit onto 129 to Lyman and work freeway all the way to Duncan Hwy 101 . If you search there jurisdiction they manage to get both lanes of i-85 sliced into there jurisdiction (somehow even though many miles from there city) but a online map clearly shows there patrol area only exist from 129 exit to north Tyger river (just past old weigh station) before hwy 290 yet there stopping cars many miles further up to hwy 101.As well they have Hwy 29 into Spartanburg covered exiting from I-85 stopping cars way past there jurisdiction which only exist for about 1 mile off I-85 (at best) again stopping were North Tyger river bridge is. They will stop you for about anything 5mph over turn signal etc. and in all these areas going into there patrol area even on a 6 lane state hwy like I-85 they have got the speeds dropped off about 15-20mph in less than 1/2 mile and there they sit Sometimes on the bridge overpass or on the entry ramp on other side of bridge . Having to commute from Greenville to Spartanburg 2 times daily I see these guys pulling in Massive money and almost every car gets searched.State hwy patrol does there jobs very effectively and are well within the law No complaints. But To Wellford this seems like a huge cash cow they have going on.Sad to see this in the year 2013. Use caution and drive the speed limit use your turn signals dont tailgate or expect to pay out lots of cash.Good Luck Passing thru These areas.As a life long SC resident I apologize to anyone who has to deal with these guys.

I was traveling to atlanta from Va about 12 midnight 10-2-14 I seen at least was at least 6 cops pulling people over at the main spartenburg sc exit ,as I pulled of the exit I was pulled over ,the police officer said I was swerving(witch was b.s) he asked for proof of insurance drivers licensee registration,I complied ,He ran my tags then had me get out of the car he kept asking me where I was going where I was from was I drinking the year and make of my car why I was going to atlanta I complied and was nice not wanting to get hung up ,I told him I had a 2 oclock appointment the next day ,he asked me what was in my trunk I said you want to see inside I opened the trunk he looked in didn't even search it asked me again what time my appointment was wtf He finally let me go the whole time he seemed upset that he couldn't find anything to write me up for , definite abuse of power
