Bamberg Target Areas
Our clients have been cited all over the county, but most citations occur along Bamberg’s main highways.
- Bamberg: The county seat is where Highway 78 intersects with the 301. There’s only single-lane access as you roll into town, with double lanes lasting only from Carlisle Street to the Heritage Center. With dozens of private turnoffs, the speed limits are low.
- Denmark: US-78 hits the 321 at the center of town. This key Amtrak stopover has a number of schools. Stop signs are more common than traffic lights, and patrollers keep an eye out for impatient drivers.
- Erhardt: The intersection at Broxton Bridge and Low County has just about the only traffic light in town, which at night, is usually flashing as a four-way stop.
- Goven: It’s less than one square mile in size and is easy to miss. Drivers should watch their speed down to Olar and on towards Savannah.
- Midway: Route 78 continues south and eventually meets up with Interstate 95. Until then, it’s an open single-lane road.
A Bamberg County Traffic Ticket
If an Officer writes you a citation, you have the right to challenge the charge in a court of law. A Bamberg County speeding ticket fine can range anywhere from $80 to over $400. When you simply pay the fee and do not appear in court, the state considers that as a guilty plea. You may receive points on your driving record and a spike in your auto insurance rate. In some cases, you may be required to appear before a Magistrate or local court, which is a big hassle is you are not a South Carolina resident. If you don’t show up, your case will be tried in your absence.
The Benefit of a Traffic Lawyer
With so many single-lane roads, it’s easy to get impatient while driving in Bamberg. Following too closely is a major offense that could result in an extra four points on your record. This is a big issue for commercial drivers. Plus, if your home state assumes the points, you may face an even harsher punishment.
South Carolina grants state police officers the right to a subjective opinion about close following, so it’s important that you avoid arguing with the law enforcement Officer when you receive your ticket. Instead, give us a call to discuss the situation. We may be able to negotiate with the officer before the ticket is finalized.
