I received a ticket for Laser gun speed of 51 in a 40mph zone. This area used to be 45 but since the new Walmart went in they dropped it to 40. The Allen traffic cop sets in the motel parking lot entrance and clocks traffic going both East and West. This is a very expensive ticket @ $205.00.

Yes, this is most definitely a speed trap and is exactly as noted above. I would imagine they will take advantage of it until someone demands that a traffic study be done to explain why a road is 40 mph when it is 4 lanes wide, but four blocks west it goes to 45 mph, cuts down to two lanes and is all residential with children frequently crossing the street.
