The tiny “town” of Campo with about 100 residents per the 2010 census has no traffic lights, caution lights, no school zones or businesses located in the 30 mph speed zone along the highway. I was slowing down at the 45 mph sign. When I saw the patrol car under the shade tree, I checked the gps and saw it showing a 30 mph limit and my speed at 42. The patrolman said the radar showed I was going faster. It seems they are more concerned with getting revenue since you can pay more to have the ticket reversed and dismissed. If concerned for safety, a caution light would be more effective and less costly than personnel, patrol cars, radars, and electronic handheld ticket writers. We typically enjoy going routes through small towns with quaint shops and restaurants but will stick to the interstate when traveling this way in the future. From the highway, it looked like Campo had nothing to offer to a traveler other than a ticket anyway.
