Q. What are fines and penalties for 56-5-2120 in South Carolina?
A: For most traffic offenses if the penalty is not provided for in that particular section you go to the general penalty section of Title 65 Chapter 5 which provides a $100 fine or up to 30 days in jail. This is the fine prior to assessments and court costs. I have attached the general penalty statute below. SECTION 56-5-6190. General penalty for violations of chapter. It is a misdemeanor for any person to violate any of the provisions of this chapter unless such violation is by this chapter or other law of this State declared to be a felony. Every person convicted of a misdemeanor for a violation of any of the provisions of this chapter for which another penalty is not provided shall be punished by a fine of not more than one hundred dollars or by imprisonment for not more than thirty days.
