    Don't stand out in the crowd. Drive just over the limit unless you know the roads well enough to know where the cops are and how they handle speed in that area. The hardest situation is when you're on your own, then it's just plain up to the cop's mood. Then a radar detector comes in handy. I use a Passport when I use one.

    Unfortunately the laser detector won't do you any good - except that you'll know when you've been caught! By the time the detector sounds, your speed will already have been registered. The only defence against laser is to get a diffuser (otherwise known as a garage door opener! ).

    I use a RoadPilot GPS database system (gives lots of info) and I have a remotely-controlled garage door!

    Re: Speed

    Garage door openers (if you know which one to buy ) can diffuse the laser on a police vehicle.

    Then if you do get pulled over, it was the garage door opener.

    Although im sure hardrockcamaro doesnt have a garage, so im not sure how that might work LOL!

    Right now I have a Valentine V1, best radar detector I have ever used. I'm probably gonna sell it soon though because it really hasn't saved me many times, cops dont clock THAT often where I live. Plus I know all thier hiding spots.

    Re: Speed

    I try to go around the speed limit most of the time, but I also keep a radar detector with me. The one time I've been pulled over for speeding I said I was a network technician and there was a crisis at the office - it worked the one time because I was heading towards the labs, but it probably won't again. If I'm going someplace where the police are particularly nasty I try to con someone else into driving. There are a few places around here where it seems like you'll get pulled over for doing anything other than going exactly the speed limit in a straight line.
