Greenville County Drivers Busted Speeding Through School Zones

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

Nearly 350 drivers have been caught breaking the rules since Greenville County students returned to class.

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit has been actively patrolling school zones in the mornings and afternoons. During the first eight days of school, deputies wrote 342 citations for speeding violations.

The Sheriff's Office is reminding everyone to proceed with caution when approaching and passing through school zones and to obey all traffic laws.

Speeding up to ten miles per hour over the speed limit in a school zone can cost you two points on your record and cost you $80. The faster you are going, the steeper it gets.

According to Master Deputy Andrew Wamsley, drivers caught going 11 mph to 24 mph over the limit, will received a four point moving violation. 14 mph - 24 mph is a $185 fine, and 25 mph and over will earn drivers a six point moving violation and $440 fine.
