Well, my stupid ass got pulled over this morning while coming home from work. I was behind this guy and went to pass him. Now when i pass somebody i don't go slow. Well, lucky me, a state trooper was in the other lane way down the road. I saw him after i finished passing so i started to slow down. Too late, saw the brake lights and then the party lights...busted!
Now i'm just thinking he's going to bust me for 65 in 55 cause that's what i was doing when i went by him. Nope, he got me at 81 in a 55
I acted surprise trying not to let on that i was really going that fast when i was passing that guy. But never in a minute would i think a cop could read your speed from that far away directly ahead of you. I guess now that i think of how radar and laser guns work it doesn't seem so far fetched. Oh well, that's what i get for having a lead foot and a passion for not wanting to be behind people. He gave me a warning for no front license plate and cited me for speeding. So i guess i got off a bit lucky. Oh yeah, he also asked why i wasn't wearing my seatbelt. Which was :bs: I told him i did have it on. He believed me so he didn't take it any further.

Looks like i'll be in the market for a radar detector. Any suggestions on some good ones?

I have a whistler, my friend has an escort but personally for the price he paid compared to what I paid, 10times as much, I think mine does a fine job. You can get what I have which is an all band detector for like 50bux on ebay anymore, and I think it works great. Goes off sometimes around supermarkets etc, but everyone Ive had did that. I had a cobra as well and it was good but only a 9band what I have now detects everything and VG2 etc.

Sorry to hear all this man. Best of luck.

:ugh: yea :ugh:

Click if you want the best

*Edit: Also there are some other tricks which may work, or may get them pissed off.

Ask them if they are radar/laser certified and how long? They have to be certified in order to issue a citation using that device.

Ask them the last time that was calibrated? Over time the devices loose their calibration and can read way high, or way low. If it's been a while (a couple months) you could easily get the ticket revoked in court.

If it's a member of the opposite sex offer a little :kiss::naughty:........well maybe not but at least you tried with the first 2 questions.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'll have to give them all a look.

No point in fighting it. I already paid the fine yesterday. Besides, i really was doing 81. But i was doing it while passing that guy. I don't like to take my time when passing somebody. I slow back down once i get in front of them.

I could try that last one...if i feel like getting beat down to the ground. The female cops around here (all 2 of them) are bitchy looking.
