    South Carolina: Speed Trap Mayor Gets $375 Speeding Ticket
    The mayor of Cottageville, South Carolina, a notorious speed trap, himself received a $375 ticket for speeding.

    CottagevilleThe mayor of a notorious South Carolina speed trap landed himself a $375 speeding ticket on Wednesday. Colleton County Sheriff's Deputy Robert Cook caught Cottageville Mayor Bert Reeves driving his 2005 Ford F-250 pickup truck at 103 MPH in a 55 MPH zone on Highway 303. The offense constitutes reckless driving under state law.

    Cottageville makes a significant amount of its budget from speeding tickets. The town's police often hide in a church parking lot or around a bend to ticket motorists immediately after the speed limit drops from 55 or 45 MPH to a 35 zone. Reeves is not seeking re-election.
