US 17, right near the city limits

Georgetown, South CarolinaNov 06, 20020 Comments

Speed limit is 60, then within a short distance it automatically drops to 45. Cops position themselves in the parking lot of a gas station only a hundred feet or so after the 45 marker and catch people as they are slowing down. I had my car on cruise control at 60 and started to coast but only reached 50 as I was entering the 45mph zone but thought nothing of it since I was obviously slowing still… cop pulled me over claiming I was still going 60. Apparently, Georgetown’s paper mill, its only source of city revenue, is shutting down and so this is the only way the city generates money now. A newspaper article was published recently stating that the city generates about $1.5 million in speeding tickets each year.
