The only ticket I ever got was driving my dads car in high school with a radar detector and got pulled over. They are ok when there is traffic but totally useless when your alone on the road. I don't speed too much anymore, so I don't have one.

if you buy one buy a good one! the main problem about them is they make you feel invincable but they dont make you invincable. the way a laser works is they zap you and boom they have a reading so they have your speed at the same time the detector goes off which isnt enough time for you to slow down.

i'd be careful

if anything, radar detectors encourage speeding.

yea i kno. i know if i get one then i would start to speed more. at the moment i dont speed that much. But i never drive on roads alone. I live in a large area with lots of people and cars so i would get a reading of the other cars right? How close would a car have to be to me (the range of the detector)?

What do u guys think of the K40? http://www.k40.com/

i had one for 2 weeks and then returned it because it wasnt worth the money, the k40 is good but way too expenisve for a high school student to afford, spend your money on mods instead but the problem with radar detectors is much of the time you find yourself speeding alot more than you would without one therefore the dector saves you alot but also you still get pulled over cause you are speeding twice as much as without one.

I voted "I have", but I've told the story on the forum b4 so I won't go through it again.

I agree with the posts above. Detectors work in certain traffic situations, but won't really save you much. Spend your $$ on mods.

Or I could sell you mine that is sitting in the glove box. http://www.escortradar.com/x50.htm [sm=pimp.gif]

I knew I'd find a use for that smiley sometime. heh heh
