Unformatted text preview: over and the first thing the cop said was, “I see you have a
radar detector. Do you speed frequently?” I can tell you, there isn’t a good answer to that one.
So will I still use a radar detector? You bet. Because it’s saved me too many
times to stop using one. But here are a few strategies to consider.
First, get a good detector. There are a number of sites on the net that rate and
review them. Valentine One and Passport 8500 are frequently reviewed with high
marks. One of the keys to a good detector is the capability to filter out false
Second, consider a remote radar detector. These units separate the antenna
from the controls and speaker so that you can hide them. The antenna is hidden
behind the grill and the control-unit is typically under the dash or someplace else

you so you can get to it without being obvious. If you get pulled over despite
your detector, quickly remove it, plug the cigarette lighter back in, and wipe off
the suction cup marks.
If you are driving in a lot of traffic, you might want to simply remove your radar
detector anyway as it won’t help. In that situation, it’s more likely you will get
bagged by an unmarked car that is pacing you.

against the unmarked car. If that’s what got you, check it out at

This technique is one of the best, and quite simple. Just wait until a faster car
goes by, then follow him from a distance. E...
