Hewitt, Texas Speed Traps
I found after being pulled over that this town is impossible to work with. Not only did it take them 2 of my 10 working days to even get my ticket into the system BUT the court employees are all reptiles, cold-blooded! They absolutely refuse to work with people from out of town and demand that all people with violations appear, in person, in court. As I explained to the when I called the 2nd working day after my ticket, that I was scheduled for major surgery on 8/29 and would not be leaving the hospital until 9/6, if everything goes well. My final day to contact the court is today 9/7. I asked to either take defensive driving or plead not guilty. They explained that I MUST appear in court (200 miles from my home) today or face a warrant for my arrest. I explained that I will not be released from medically to drive for 4 weeks! What did they expect me to do? "Well", she answered, "You should have gotten here sooner." What part of, I go out of the hospital yesterday, did you not understand????? IDIOTS!!! I’m hiring a attorney. It is worth 10Xs the ticket amount to me, not to pay these bozos.

Throughout the entire city.
Anywhere in the city limits
Whenever the city coffers are looking a little lean these guys will be out in force in search of easy revenue. The court system is pretty much the kangaroo variety too. Be especially careful in front of Midway High school. A 50 mph limit from Waco drops to 20 mph in about a half of a block distance.
