South Carolina Speeding Hot Spots
Speed traps in and around Beaufort, South Carolina
Where am I likely to get a speeding ticket South Carolina?
Like any region, the area around Beaufort, Bluffton and Hilton Head Island has its share of speeding hot spots. Drivers in this area should use caution, as it is likely that a police officer is waiting around the next corner.
Motorists traveling on I-95, just north of the Georgia border should take care, as the police departments of Hardeeville, Ridgeland and Yemassee are often found patrolling their respective stretches of I-95.
Yemassee Speeding Tickets
Driver's using a GPS will frequently exit I-95 and drive through the Town of Yemassee to get to Beaufort, Port Royal or Parris Island. Watch out, as the speeds vary frequently through Yemassee and police officers are on the lookout!
Hardeeville and Bluffton Speeding Tickets
Vacationers on their way to Hilton Head Island typically take Highway 278 from I-95. The first several miles of Highway 278 are in the town limits of Hardeeville, and they patrol that area heavily. The last several miles of Highway 278 before Hilton Head Island are within the Town of Bluffton. This stretch is patrolled by both Town of Bluffton Police and by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
Highway 17 Speeding Tickets
Drivers who choose to take Highway 17 through Beaufort County while heading to Charleston or Savannah should be cautious as well. The Department of Transportation recently constructed a new interchange at Highway 17 and Highway 21. Although construction is complete, the speed limit fluctuates between 60, 45 and 55 miles-per-hour with very little warning.
