We had the same thing at Mack's Creek south of the Lake of the Ozarks. Some 80%+ of the town's revenue came from traffic fines.

The highway didn't go though the town but skirted past the edge of it.  There was no reason to even slow down let alone lower the speed limit.

It got so bad and so well known that it even made 60 Minutes.   Large billboards were placed on each approach advising of the speed trap but still they had two cars out working that strip of highway full time.

The state had to pass some laws limiting traffic patrol of state highways through small towns.
