i was doin about 40-50 down a road that the SP is 25, and it is impossible to do without holdin the brake
met a car, noticed it was an unmarked copper, looked in my rear view and he pulled in a driveway and turned around,so i slow down slowly to 25, her ran up on me and i knew this was it..after about 2 minutes of this i turned off on another 25 road and he followed me then hit the lights
pulled over in a ditch and heres how it went
cop-"looks like u can pull into this ditch alittle better than me"
me-"ehh, i was kinda worried about it"
cop- can i see ur license and insurance
me-yessir(give it 2 him)
cop-you know why i pulled u over dont u?
cop - 45 in a 25,i hate to give u a ticket, but there makin me write em, so, jus keep it under 15 over and youll be alright (hands me my crap)

recommendations from shasta to prevent this in the future or have a better chance on getting a warning at least: https://store.valentine1.com/store/
most likely pimpy's reecommendations: http://www.escortradar.com/x50.htm
more recommendations from shasta: http://www.digitalgangster.com/4um/s...ead.php?t=7803
goto traffic school and get the points removed off your licence it will save you money in the future when you get your own insurance. or show up in traffic court and hope the cop doesnt remember anything. take these documents from http://www.digitalgangster.com/4um/s...ead.php?t=7481 and give them a whirl if applicable. whatever you chose to do, don't rip the tickets up like meca and handle the situation asap or call for a delay -- before you get the licence suspension letter in the mail and then you'll end up paying $48 to reinstate your licence
just my 127 words
i got an MIP alcohol
is that a "run in with the law"?
hey shasta you know any sites that list what types of radar different pds and highway patrols are using?

i have never ran into a cop that still uses X band, i think you will be safe by disabling it.. although i leave mine on for the hell of it. when you drive the same road every day you should know where it beeps and would be safe to disregard the beeps, unless it shows multiple bogeys in the area. i must agree i hate that X shit to but its good to keep the radarrr on lock.

Unless you live in these areas, or are planning a trip there, you can feel comfortable disabling X band from your radar detector.
ps why is the blue display of x50 $40 more.. rofl hilarious
pimp gauges. like 95% of the cops i run into use Ka, however, ive ran into some trooper going to indiana using K so i definetely wouldnt fuck with K. better to be safe than sorry
info i found on K band seems like it is weaksauce when it comes to owning us motorists.
Around 1976, radars began using the K-band on two channels, 24.125 and 24.150 GHz. The problem with K-band is that it's close to a band of frequencies readily absorbed by water, which is centered around 22.24 GHz. As a result, K-band radar is strongly diminished by high atmospheric moisture such as fog and heavy rain. Modern traffic radars almost always use the Ka-band nowadays, on one of 13 channels from 33.4 to 36.0 GHz in either narrow band or wideband mode. Higher frequencies are preferred because, all things being equal, they have a narrower beamwidth than lower frequencies, which improves range and accuracy. source: http://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mradar.html
also the only L (laser) ive ever picked up was some fucking suv's brake lights in front of me in the drive-thru at mcdonalds it was weird as fuck it was like a euro-siren going off so i dont think ive ever been zapped with a laser gun but i heard thats like almost impossible to avoid
That's ignorant. He can just write that he visually observed your speed to be x. He doesn't have to have it on the gun, nor does he have to show you the gun, and he can check your speed while passing you.
