I used your method for years and it works well in most areas...not here. I got two tickets in a two month stretch once I moved here. Once in a neighborhood (43 in a 35) and another in a 6 lane arterial (58 in a 50) in which the cop was hidden behind a wall and had his gun over the top......no warnings, just a ticket. I am in my car for work half the day...so I am evading cops and their technologies constantly. I haven't been cited since getting the Bell Sti and have had it over 2 years, with numerous warnings of radar/laser/pop.
I'm happy for you and your "method"...you sound rather smug and seem to have a "cops" attititde.....you law enforcement? I have evaded laser and pop.....as a single car and in a pack. The pop alert is enough in advance that you can react quickly enough...I know I have done it. The cop "looks " at you hard...but clearly he did NOT have enought time to "lock" and "verify" the excessive speed, otherwise I would have been pulled over....who knows maybe he was eating a twinkie at the time and couldn't react fast enough to confirm. Don't know...don't care.
My Bell Sti works for me... I feel more aware with it and check my speeds when threats are around. To be clear, I am not racing around all over the place and being observant is key.....BUT the cops around here are aggressive I felt an additional set of "eyes" was necessary. Once again...I could care less what your opinion is. Bottom line use one or not...means nothing to me. The tread was started cuz someone wanted to know about detectors....I shared what I use and my experience with it, nuff said.
