According to a report published in the Island Packet March 9, state legislators are debating a bill which could alter the punishments for drivers travailing up to 10 mph over the speeding limit.
The current law demands that all traffic offenses be reported to the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles, who would proceed to assess points onto drivers' records which would, as a result, increase their insurance premium. The new bi-partisan bill would, if approved, increase the fines for speeders to $150 in exchange for not charging any points against the driver.
