Cool. At that speed your fuel costs are $1.44 per gallon more than me. So in essence - you are always paying a fine for speeding.Ricko said:I've been using a Beltronics RX65, it's saved me a lot of tickets in the last few years.
Just today I was following along with a babe in a Passat cruising at about 90. I alerted to a weak KA signal and went for the brakes while the Passat pulled away...and got nailed by the State Cop hiding under an underpass. Better her then me:thumbsup: .
Having an idea where the signal emanates is "gimmicky?" puh-leezbad mechanic said:The Valentine was a really nice detector, but it hasn't really kept up, and I feel the top line offerings from Bel and Escort are better in virtually every way. I always felt the arrows were gimmicky and not needed.
The best way I found to stop getting tickets was just not driving stupid fast, regardless of the radar detector I had. Guess it was just part of growing out of my early-mid 20's. I just try to keep within 9 mph over the speed limit, unless traffic is generally moving faster. Seeing as highway speed limits are 65-75 mph these days, that means going 74-84 mph, depending on the state.lil'stink said:Does anybody ever use these anymore? Just curious if anybody has any experience with radar/laser detectors. Going on a road trip with miles of open highway, thought it might be nice to have one along.
