We all know better. If you live in Robertson County, you know where the police in Calvert are sitting, everyday with speed detectors. There are only two ways into town, and lets face it, they are on one end or the other, all times of the day and night.
Since I know better, I really can’t complain, well except for a few minor issues. This past Sunday I was headed to Dallas when Calvert Officer Mike Hoyt pulled me over for speeding. He was a nice enough fellow, set about doing his job, but offered little explanation for the obvious speed trap that Calvert has become, only stating that there were no speed traps in Calvert.
Well, here is where a lot of folks and I can quickly disagree.
Several businesses offer a 10% discount if you present your speeding ticket at the checkout counter. The Rusty Duck, the local wine / beer pub in fact offers two free beverages if you present your speeding ticket. Now what is that saying about the lack of a speed traps in Calvert?
