sorry to rant, but i guess in my case a radar detector wouldn't have really helped me. although just because your not speeding doesn;t mean they can;t pull you over for a million other things if they want to. i still want to get a radar dececter though so i know when to grip the wheel w/ both hands, only look straight ahead, wear my seat belt, not stop my nose bleed, and prepare to be pulled over.
while i'm on the topic don't u feel like too many good drivers get tickets, and not enough bad ones do. i mean just because your going 15 mph over the speed limit doesn't meen your out of control or a bad driver. the people who are tail gaiting, passing on the right (in NJ), driving slow in the fast lane (in NJ), and weavin through traffic should get tickets. this whole post is nothing but my opinion, but cops totally focus on the wrong things.
