US Highway 76 near Prosperity-Rikard Elementary School

Prosperity, South CarolinaJun 08, 20071 Comments

Speed drops from 55 to 35 when heading North on US 76 (into the town of Prosperity). This is the same point of the town limits so the cops like to sit at an antique store, in a parking lot at the elementary school (behind a row of hedges), and in a hidden drive. They sit out there after dark (typically) with their lights off just waiting on someone. I got busted when the "reduced speed ahead" sign was down for *some reason* and I was doing "50" in a 35 although I argued that I wasn’t going that fast but it didn’t matter. Oh, the cops are always quick to offer you a high-dollar ticket in exchange for no points, haha.

The Prosperity police are still at it. The identical thing recently happened to me. 50 in a 35, missed the speed change. It's best to avoid driving this road. There's really no reason to go through these small towns on US 76, especially at night.
