Maybe not since its not drug related or anything like that but it makes you think about guys like Jerome Brown and the need for speed.

I can see hitting 100 (if you are hotdogging) and then letting off but 110? And you were worried about getting injured on the field..

Plausible? Could be, but I doubt it. Anytime you get a ticket, the points cut in half every year after (as long as you have no additional tickets) until they're gone. Doubt if he loses his license (unless Mom nabs it). He won't be eligible for the Traffic Education Program because of past violations, but I'm sure that something will get worked out. But he's going to unass some money and points when all is said and done.

Swag is right..we could very easily be discussing this topic in a completely different way.


BS

Order 66, that's not BS in NC (which is where that poster lives). NC has some of the craziest court systems I've ever heard of. Seatbelt ticket in SC - $25, in NC - $162 by the time it's done.

Once you get a ticket in NC, the officer can't help you. It's all on the court then. At least here, you can try to talk to the officer before the court date (or at least at court). If people show up to court for me, I always try to help as much as I can. Unless of course, you were a dick on the side of the road or when you come to court or both.

Default Re: Clowney ticketed ... 110 in a 70

Just the law as I understand it in SC:

Going 20 mph over the speed limit can result in an additional "reckless driving" charge (above a simple moving violation). At the officer's descretion, you can be arrested for this. Say, if two people were drag racing on surface streets, as a tack on ticket for drunk drivers speeding in excess, for someone who was speeding due to inability to control their speed (and were truly reckless).

Officers typically do not arrested people in excess of 20 mph if they are joy riding.

110 in a 70 is pretty excessive, but it's not like I haven't done it. Heck, I used to pin my Altima at 127 just to make the engine cut off to show my buddies what happens. I did that on 77 north, because if you're smart, you can speed and not get caught.

Scunyon...thanks for the clarification on NC vs SC. For some reason, I thought the 15 over rule applied in both states.

And he was clocked going 110. Wonder if his top speed was more.

There was a chase that started at the welcome center on 77 coming in from Charlotte (90MM) that ran down to Chester (61MM) and back up to Charlotte. Average speed was 142mph. Chase took less than 9 minutes to cover that distance. Crown Vic started it, the Audi S6 he was behind looked back and ... In came the Charger and then off and back on the interstate. When he saw he couldn't outrun him, he cut the median and headed home.

All that to say... 110 is pretty ho hum compared to some of the idiots we run across. Try a fully loaded tractor trailer running 108 coming through Chester on 77. Stopped? Yes. Jailed? Damn skippy!

I was pulled doing 75 in a 45, it was 6 points and 450 in fines. I was in college too.

We've been told 25 over and it's not an add on. So if I charge for reckless, I can't also charge for speeding 25 over. Now a reckless along with passing a stopped school bus, you tote both to jail. All depends on what you're doing. A lot of guys try to stack stuff on but it always gets dropped or plead out in court.

State guys will go with the most serious offense. So if you're stopped for speeding, but end up DUI, the DUI is what you'll get along with a warning for the speed.

He was probably slowing down. Most people coming out of Columbia mash gas from the 34 to the 40 and slow down just before exit 41 because it's a well known hiding spot.

In Georgia, he would be a "SUPER SPEEDER" ( Some add on law that allows you to be charged by County and then again by the State)

Default Re: Clowney ticketed ... 110 in a 70

My, how times have changed. Back in the day I still lived in SC and the limit was still 65 every single time a cop saw me or my wife at 76 or more we got pulled and it was $55 (55 1994 dollars).

Nowadays when I'm on 77 on the way to Charleston for my annual visit I got everyone flying around me if I'm not doing at least 76. Which is fine because I'm usually running about 80.

I-77 is a 90 mph road. Some don't want to admit that but it's the truth.

I personally don't have much problem with JC or anyone else running 110 on the road. I hope that the traffic citation and the fine is as far as this goes for him. I also hope he tears some up some Wiscy QB hiney in the bowl game.

I admit to exceeding speeds of 100 mph myself on 77. This is not Aaron Hernandez stuff.

I roll up to Charlotte every month or so from Augusta area and go about 85-90. I've found on I-77 there there is way fewer cops than any other interstate in this state. At least from Blythewood till it goes to three lane I rarely see anyone. Clowney probably had something to do in the Rock and sped in the wide open stretch.
