I've never owned a Detector and have Never been Ticketed, well, not exactly true, I have sucessfully argued with the Cop and defended several in Court, incl. a 125 in a 25 zone!

IMHO, I think a Detector makes one feel more secure and therefore more likely to exceed the Limit. Eventually, this is gonna catch up with you.

I also believe that you seriously hamper any ability to reason with the Cop, or a Judge, if they see a Detector hanging off your windshield - give the impression that you intend to exceed the Speed Limit. I've spoken with several Cops and State Troopers who've said that they would never give a break to a guy with a Detector...

Happy Motoring!...Jim'99
