Speed 11-15 Over Limit

I have been hypermiling for almost two years now. When I started I used 11.5 gal/week. I am now just under 9 gal/week. My car is a 1997 VW Passat VR6.

Today I get a speed camera infraction notice in the mail 41 in a 30 zone. I did not at first recognize the area. So I did a google map and they have setup a speed camera at the bottom of a hill.

At the top of the hill is a red light and two blocks later is the speed camera. There is not another car in the shot coming or going.

I plan to ask for a hearing just to agrue the point. Just coasting down a hill out gear to save fuel and get slapped for 50 USD.
