Turbeville, SC is a notorious speed trap municipality. They have passed an ordinance that is in violation of State law. The ordinance charges a fine much higher than allowed by State law, and also negates State law points requirements. As such the ordinance should be unenforceable.
The SC legislature has known for some time about Turbeville's actions, but have not yet taken steps to reign them in. On the other hand it does not appear that Turbeville is reporting their citations to the SC DMV. Since the DMV is not aware of the citation they can not report it to other states, or take steps to enforce it.
Look up the citation on the following site:
