Morning Star Road near State Highway 121

Coming off highway 121 on to Morning Star, the road reduces from 2 lanes to 1. The cops are coming the other direction and the speed limit is set absurdly low at 30 MPH, you are legally allowed to ride your bicycle faster than that past the cars on that road! Allowed a van to pass me from the second lane as the road narrowed to 1 lane and when the cop crested on the other side, he u-turned and pulled me over instead of the actual culprit (the van)! Said I was going 15 MPH over the limit, but I was actually only going 2-3 MPH over the 30 MPH! Totally ridiculous. If their speed detection equipment is that poorly calibrated or inaccurate or if it is a training issue they need to address with their officers, I am not sure, but they need to do something to correct this ASAP! I would suggest driving about 15-20 MPH in that area to allow enough cushion for the inaccurate readings. I also plan on informing the chamber of commerce there about this. We were spending nearly $3,000/month on goods and services in that town and because of their error, they got $100, but lost $36,000/year for their businesses. Does that make any economic sense? We are now taking our business to a more responsible town, Frisco.
