Where In South Carolina Where You Ticketed?

For vacation or pleasure, residents from North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Virginia and many northern states often drive through South Carolina.

Unfortunately, drivers are often ticketed for speeding, DUI or other traffic violations for traveling in the following areas:

  • Sand Hills area: This area includes the cities of Rock Hill and Fort Mill and communities in New York and Chester County. Drivers are often cited on frequented highways including the Interstate 77 and I-20 corridor.
  • Pee Dee area: This area of the state includes Myrtle Beach and Florence and communities throughout Marlboro, Dillon and Marion counties.
  • Piedmont area: This area includes the cities of Aiken, Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson as well as communities throughout Cherokee County. Drivers traveling on Interstate 26 and I-85 are often cited.
  • Turbeville area: This area of the state is particularly notorious for speed traps on Interstate 26, I-20 and I-95. The town of Turbeville has implemented enormously high penalties, including a $500 fine for speeding.
  • Coastal areas: Coastal cities of South Carolina, including Charleston, Ridgeland, Yemassee, Walterboro, St. George and Hilton Head, are areas where tourists are often cited.

Did You Receive A Citation In Any Of These Areas? Here's What To Do.

Many drivers cited in any of the above areas often ponder what to do. Should they just ignore the ticket? Pay the ticket? Or, come back and fight the ticket?

With the help of our team at the Lord Law Firm, LLC, we recommend none of the above. Here's why.

Ignoring the ticket isn't recommended because your ticket will follow you back to your home state. Paying the ticket means pleading guilty, which could cost you hundreds in fines, loss of your driver's license and possible jail time.

Fighting the ticket is the wisest approach – but you don't necessarily have to return to South Carolina to do so. That's where we come in.
