Until you said less than $200, I was going to sugest a Valentine One. My brother has one, a great piece of equipment.

Like Getto said, Cobra is pretty good, Escort is also good. There is another one, but I can't think of it, I'll try to find it.

Thanks Stu, That is what I was going to write but when I got to the bottom of currently written post, you had already said it so I'll just re-enforce it "OBEY THE SPEED LIMIT"! It is for safety ..., your own plus the other people out there on the highways and byways. It will also save you a lot of money that you could spend on your ride.

Radar detector = $200. to $300.
Traffic tickets plus cost of court = ?????

If you drive at a reasonable speed you will be surprised at the increased fuel economy.

Plus when you get stopped a radar detector is just more likely to indicate that you need a ticket. It indicates a habitual speeding habit. If you do not have one you may be more able to talk your way out of a ticket.

Yeah, it's more important to constantly speed and go nowhere fast then to obey the laws. After all at 16 they like to take your license away much faster for disobeying. I think it's meant to get your attention before you have an accident and hurt/kill someone. But I've been around awhile so we older folks don't know anything. :nono:

I never quite understood why you'd need one. I mean, once he radar's you and the thing goes off, he's got you, you can't do anything but slow down and pull over..

But if your going along and there's a stationary trap layed across the road, then I guess that would help you out...

Just say no to speeding!!

Can't out run the radar anyway so once they hit on you they most likely have you. I've only had one speeding ticket in 40yrs of driving and that one was way to fast and dangerous and I almost lost my license over it. Got off on a technicality...their equipment wasn't kept updated.
