The police like to sit in OReillys parking lot or across street getting individuals coasting down the hill west out of town square. The posted limit is 30, but unless you apply your brakes continually, you will coast at a higher speed normally 40 to 48. They should know that it would be more realistic to post the 40 mph sign at the railroad underpass since it turns to 40 directly aftering the coasting down the hill. Wow what a quota getter!

In regards to this post...if the posted speed limit is 30mph and you are going down hill and complaining about hitting the brakes to maintain the posted 30mph speed, what do you do when the speed limit is posted at 65mph and you come up on a hill??? Do you just coast until you come to a stop? I bet that you press the accelerator to maintain that posted 65mph speed limit don't you... There is no such thing as a "speed trap" people, the speed limit is posted for any givin stretch of roadway in the U.S., you as the responsible driver, should pay more attention to your driving instead of the stereo, the text messages, or the phone call.
