Common Moving Violations
A county law enforcement officer can issue a citation if you are caught doing any of the following:
- Driving between 10 and 25 mph over the posted speed limit
- Rolling through a stop sign
- Driving on a suspended license
- Following another vehicle too closely
- Driving a vehicle that is unsafe or inoperable
- Carrying an open alcohol container
- Operating an uninsured vehicle
- Driving on a suspended license
- Drinking while driving
- Failing to obey a traffic light
- Recklessly driving or operating a vehicle without a license
Fines and Penalties
A Barnwell County speeding ticket can be costly, especially if you are clocked at 25 mph or more over the limit. Even five miles over is a strict offense, and fines range anywhere from $80 to over $400. Reckless drivers usually receive tougher penalties, as do suspended drivers who often face jail time and hundreds of dollars in fines.
If you are a repeat offender, you should seriously consider an attorney. An alcohol-related violation, for instance, may start with a $200 fine. However, your fee may double on a second offense.
What Goes on Your Permanent Record?
A Barnwell County traffic ticket can seriously impact your driving record. South Carolina utilizes a point system between two and six, and a small infraction can easily compound.
Suspension can begin at 12 points, so a two-point hit can be serious if you already have 10 points on your record.
Most traffic citations will cause your insurance premium to go up. Plus, if you are a resident of another state, a court appearance is a major hassle.
