Clowney charged with going 84 mph this time

Hey, it’s an improvement over going 110 (allegedly), but still:

Thursday morning, University of South Carolina defensive football star Javedeon Clowney got another traffic ticket for speeding.

This time, an officer from the Columbia police department stopped Clowney and charged him with going 84 miles per hour in a 55-mph zone.

The stop took place around 10:30 a.m. Thursday on the outskirts of Columbia’s downtown, where I-26 meets I-126, according to a traffic citation obtained by The State newspaper. The citation was released through official police channels at the paper’s request….

    Only 84? Man, it’s like he’s not even trying anymore. He’s just pulling up and loafing every other play. He’s out of shape. No way he’s going to be in shape for those Florida police when the team goes down to the bowl.

        Yeah, but it was at Malfunction Junction, the day after Christmas. All those other vehicles tend to slow you down….

    So THAT’s who blew past me. 😮

    Kathryn, when I went through Malfunction Junction that morning, traffic was almost non-existent. I’ve seen more traffic there at 10 in the evening than I saw that morning.

      But maybe it picked up, with after Christmas shoppers? I had quite a time getting off at St. Andrews Road east coming from town at 2:15 PM before Christmas! All the mergers from I 20 heading towards the Mecca that is Harbison.

    Who hasn’t gotten a ticket in the speed trap where I-26 and 126 drop down to 55? That was where i got my first ticket in Columbia, but unfortunately, not my last.

      Me. I have never gotten a speeding ticket, and I have been driving since 1975….I was afraid of losing my driving privileges when it was my parents’ car, and then I had better use for my money.

        Well…there’s a difference between getting a speeding ticket and deserving a speeding ticket. Can you say that you haven’t *deserved* a speeding ticket since 1975?

          Well, I do drive up to five mph over the limit, and occasionally it creeps higher, but compared to the folks who do 75+ at Malfunction Junction, while I struggle to balance the legal limit with the much faster flow of traffic….
          Now, any interstate in Atlanta….I mean, you’ll get plowed over if you don’t keep with the flow…

      Devine gets to be a speed trap at times. I mean, when there are plenty of parked cars and folks coming and going, sure, but when it’s pretty deserted, I can see the temptation. Ditto Knox Abbott Drive….
