Was approaching this little town from the east, on highway 378. Saw the sign ahead that said 35 mph, slowed down. Then almost immediately saw the blue lights up ahead. I told him I was slowing down for the 35 limit. He said the speed limit was 45 mph before coming into the town, and you were going 69 mph. Just as the other posters noted, the cop said there would be no points as he was “doing me a favor”. Ticket said violation of traffic ordinance. And the fine was $388.00! I’m nearly always the slowest person on the road. I see speeders flying past me all the time. This is probably indeed this town’s only source of income – taking advantage of the many people going back and forth from Myrtle Beach, and the strangely shifting mph limits on this road. I will never go through this town again, or anywhere near it, except to traffic court for this ticket. Ruined the trip to Myrtle Beach too.
