As town is in a dip, you are coming into town downhill from either direction and you need to apply brake to get down from 55 to 35 — just letting up on the gas probably won’t slow you enough.
cops sit just inside town hidden between whatever they can, buildings, or other cars.
This guy is good. Bam! You’re being timed be AccruTRAK. He waits untilo almost dark to pounce.
