And if you are busy monitoring your "countermeasures" then that is attention that is being taken from the road, attention that is sorely needed if you are driving fast enough to require them.
    Then I guess you have been numbed by your Camaro.

    Can you put the jammers inside the windsheild or does that mess them up?

To all those tools in the slow lane: have fun doing a "safe" 55 with all those trucks and traffic trying to deal with you in trying to get on, off or around. Not safe.

    I know I've explained this many times before but you refuse to listen to what I say. No matter.
    this, ive seen so many accidents by people who are ridding in a pack of cars. I do my best to put distance between them. I really hate being in the middle since you have 8 places to keep an eye out for a car to come into your spot.

    Because, you know, my speeding on the interstate is the worst crime in this city. I'm glad they've cleaned up all of the drug dealers and street gangs.
    they get paid over time to go... no real incentive for them to miss out unless they stopped paying overtime in that area.

    ive driven around there a bunch, never had a problem moving at a comfortable speed. try not only driving during mass commuting times.

    i am a big advocate for the rabbit idea, but some times the cop will let one car go and then nail you.

    If I didn't have so many to-be-installed mods sitting around, I'd order a Val One tonight.

    With that said, my impression is nothing out there is absolutely perfect except letting that one schmuck who wants to go 0.0000001 MPH faster do the job for you.

    Hey Will sorry about the delay work is raping me lately. Absolutely the best bang-for-the-buck countermeasure is the Valentine One. The key differences between it and say the Escort Redline or 9500 is the bogey counter and directional arrows. The bogey counter is good where others fail because you might have an encounter and then pass by it. With the V1 if you get another alert you can tell if its additional or the same alert where the others you can't. Also the arrows allow you to determine exactly where the threat is coming from. A HUGE plus.

    About the only reason I would recommend anything else is if you need to travel in Hellginia or the republic of Kalifornia. If you do the Redline is Spectre (the radar detector detector that cops use) proof.

    Get one Randy, the best mod I have ever done hands down! Can't enjoy Miss Maggie without one IMHO.

    I have an Escort Qi45 w/laser diffusers that I need to install. Gotta find the best place. I can't live without it! It'll tell you what you can't see immediately. I'm an attentive driver, but cops can be sneaky.
