21 yrs old? BMW? Running

21 yrs old? BMW? Running from cops? Probably a spoiled brat that thinks daddy will fix everything.

It's obviously a driver's

It's obviously a driver's license picture, not a mugshot. Also, he was driving a Mitsubishi Lancer with the letters BNW in the license plate. He was not driving a BMW

Another one of those South

Another one of those South Carolina drivers. Lord, I hate to get behind one of the slow ones on Bobby Jones Expressway. It's like being behind a horse and wagon.

Swamp: They're even worse on

Swamp: They're even worse on Washington Road. I groan whenever I see a SC tag in front of me. They just ain't in any hurry and half the time they're lost.

Well I guess I am an

Well I guess I am an exception to the rule! I live in SC but work in Augusta. It's the Georgia drivers who are always in a hurry to speed. I always drive 5 mph over the limit. I refuse to go any faster due to the fact if you get a speeding ticket with SC tags and it will cost you plenty. Last one was close to a grand and I dont make enough to throw money out the window. So please the next time you get stuck behind one of us then thank your court system and how they screw the good ole boy trying to get to work.

Maybe we drive what they call

Maybe we drive what they call the "speed limit". If you don't want to do the speed limit then pass us. If you can't pass us legally then you will probably pass us illegally. It's your ticket if you get caught.
