Edisto Beach is a speed trap. The Edisto Beach Police Chief's report in the Town of Edisto Beach November Newsletter is embarrassing. He reported that in the month of October, which is the off season, the following traffic tickets: 43 traffic citations, 31 speeding tickets, 1 golf cart violation, and 73 traffic warnings. All of this for a Town that is probably 10 miles in length. The movie crew was only here about two weeks and received 30 traffic tickets during that time. Welcome to Edisto!
Do we really need 10 police cars doing basically nothing but traffic patrol. There were also 6 burglaries in October. It is my understanding one of the burglarized homeowners questionned the chief as to how the investigation was going and was told the Edisto Beach Police do not investigate but only write reports of burglaries, etc., because they don't have the staff to investigate. No wonder. They're too busy writing traffic tickets!
