South Carolina Considers Alternate Penalties for Slightly Speeding
 
South Carolina is considering a bill that would allow police to slap $150 tickets on motorists caught driving less than 10 mph over the limit --10 times the current minimum -- but let them skip reporting the tickets to shield low-speed offenders from higher insurance premiums.

According to the bipartisan legislation, windfall revenues would be split between the state and the towns or cities that issue tickets.

will be a nice option for a 10+mph violation with an on the spot reduction to $150 only fine...

South carolina is about making that money. Its because its such a big tourist state in the summer and like hitting them people from out of state with useless tickets. Should be worrying about crime and not people going over the speed limit by a few MPH. what a joke.

Ya, I think there is way too much overhead compared to the risk reduction of those tickets. It makes sense to find a way to make it cheaper in the long run for everyone while pocketing a nice bit of change immediately.
