No state has more speed traps than South Carolina

Do you every find yourself frustrated with all of the speed traps in South Carolina? Do you feel like they're everywhere, waiting for you around every corner? Well, you're not alone. A study has shown that South Carolina actually has more speed traps than any other state in the U.S.

The survey was carried out by the National Motorists Association. To come to these results, they looked at data spanning five years. The survey did take into account that some reports of speed traps could be wrong, and they used control measures to reduce the impact of those reports on the overall results.

While there were many areas in the state with a lot of speed traps, the group found that the city that had the most was Bluffton, South Carolina. They said that the gap between Bluffton and the next-highest city was pretty wide.

The point of the survey, according to the group, was to expose how often resources are used in a poor manner. They pointed out that speeding is an issue that prevails even with all of these traps -- never really falling in terms of how common it is -- so they said that speed traps are not getting the job done. They argued that states should look into other methods, such as potentially changing the speed limits in areas where that could help.

As you can see, the odds of being caught at a speed trap are higher in South Carolina than anywhere else, so you must know what legal steps you have to take if you get a traffic violation in this manner.
