Any recommendations for a traffic lawyer that will work with the Calvert Municipal Court?

Didn't see the speed limit change and by the time I realized it was too late.

That's your defense? I didn't see the sign? Not sure any attorney can win with that one.

Just fighting the alleged speed not that I wasn't speeding.

You're not going to win the case with "I was speeding, just not as fast as you say I was speeding".

Calvert has the shortest deferred disposition of any ticket I've ever gotten. If you're eligible for either deferred or defensive diving, those routes are much cheaper to get a ticket off your record.

If you fight the ticket, you're going to pay a lot more than $125, and you're likely to lose, so it's going on your record.

Nasty little town. Known speed trap. And I've never gotten a ticket there.

Have to second what Esteban said.

It's a known *Imfamous* speed trap.

For that reason they have a very efficient, fast system to take your money and wish you "good day". I had to call the court to get deferred adjudication worked out ~20 years ago and left a message. The Judge, himself (not a clerk) called me back about 10 minutes later and we worked it all out.

I just don't speed on 6 between Bryan and Waco. That 90 mile stretch is a speed trap between the small towns and troopers.

Looking forward to the day (although prolly not in my lifetime), when they build a bypass around Hearne & Calvert and we can sail past those towns at 70 mph.
The White House cannot run an orderly and fair press conference when a reporter acts this way, which is neither appropriate nor professional.

Watch out on the northbound side of town. That cop likes to sit right over the hill after the 45mph sign.

You can do 100 southbound with no problem.

The judge:
"Have you ever heard of Calvert before?"
Defendant: "Yes"
Judge: "Guilty, dumbass"

Seriously, if you drive 6 to waco, you just need to accept you'll need to slow down slightly before and after Calvert and same with Riesel.

About 8 years ago Mrs. LOYAL AG and I left the kids with her mom in Beeville and headed to Port A for the day. On the way back I cut the cruise as we pulled into Taft but didn't work real hard to get from 70 to 55 to 45 to 30. Consequently I found myself in the Whataburger parking lot at about 1145 PM with the entire Taft police department. The arresting officer pulled in behind me and blocked me into the parking spot while the other officer raced through the parking lot and turned into the empty lot next to Whataburger then parked in front of me. Now, I'm driving a nine year old OD Green Ford Expedition, the very definition of a mom mobile yet apparently I was such a threat to the fine citizens of Taft that they needed the entire department to give me a ticket. Mrs. LA promptly hopped on Facebook to share the hilarity with the world. For what? 46 in a 30.

When we finally got back to her mom's house we walked in still laughing about it. Her step dad who was a Game Warden for the coastal area back then asked where the ticket happened and we said Taft. His response, "Oh, that guy's an idiot. I can't help you there."

When I called the courthouse this was the conversation:

Me: Got a ticket this weekend. Need to set up defensive driving.
Clerk: Why would you do that?
Me: Because I don't want it on my record.
Clerk: Deferred Adjudication is only 30 days.
Me: So this is just about money?
Clerk: Yes.
Me: Cool. What's that address?

My advice to OP. Take the 30 days deferred or whatever it is and move on.

If you're eligible for defensive driving, I don't think that you can get deferred.

You can choose either. But defensive driving is cheaper and faster, plus you can use deferred if you get a second ticket. So I'd always choose defensive over deferred.

I've gotten my share of tickets over the years.

It must have been a county rule that I...uh, I mean my friend...was talking about last May.

Got my first ticket on Monday in 23 years of driving. Going 23 in a 20 mile an hour school zone. There was a sign that I didn't see then another that was flashing that I got pulled over short of and luckily had slowed down in thinking I was entering a school zone.. The officer knew that I was thoroughly confused and knew that I didn't see the sign.

I don't know if Calvert is same but they used to not report tickets to the state.
I got a ticket going through Calvert on way up to metroplex in fall of 1997 for the A&M- North Texas game at Texas Stadium.
Never paid the ticket and never had an issue renewing drivers license ect.
Would get reminders in mail from Calvert court up until about 2005 or so and have not heard anything from them again.

All is good..... unless I get pulled over in Calvert again.

A good radar detector, and Waze, and i'm virtually invisible to the police. The former is worth every penny I paid. The latter is free. Use those two and almost no way you get a ticket.

Or you could just pay attention and not speed.

They've gone through several chiefs and officers over the years. One time the entire department resigned at once.

You still have to watch out for traveling police cars (Waze won't warn you of those), and instant-on radar. But yeah, these days with the typical limit at 70 mph there's little need to speed on the highway anymore. It's coming into the little towns and speed zones out in the middle of nowhere that'll get you.

Agree. I got popped coming into College Station for Saturday's game. Near Iona coming in on 60 from Huntsville. Out in the middle of nowhere and it was just him and me coming over hills. I wasn't paying attention and he was flipping his radar on and off while traveling. I had the music too loud and didn't hear my Valentine One chirping until too late. 86 in a 70.

I always laugh when going into Calvert, you see 90% of the vehicles hard on their brakes slowing down, the other 10% is happy to be passing all of the slow pokes...until.

Yep.

Whenever I see that, I can't help but think "Now, this must be your first time in this town".

And...I do it in Sheriff Andy Taylor's voice.
