    I'm in a highway patrol hellhole. both my neighbors are patrollers and two more live up the street from me. the road I take to get to town usually has 2-3 patrollers on it all the time.

    when a radar detector goes off it means you were hit with a radar, so they already have your speed. the cb radio idea is for asking truckers where the "bears" are, if your polite they will tell you were all of them are by mile marker, and will let you pass(if your going fast). its really only effective on the highway

    another technique I use is when you get pulled over and they ask you how fast you were going, tell them what ever the speed limit was, maybe 5 over. this has worked for me the last 3 times i've been pulled over.

    one month)
    They've been installing speed cameras all over the place in my area. The good news is that it's "only" a $40 fine and no points, and you only get a ticket at 10 mph or higher over the limit. On one route, it was done by cameras in a van, on a clear, wide, road posted at 25 mph - that one got me a couple of times in the Passat, so I changed my route.

    I haven't used a radar detector in years, mainly because my biggest concern is the unmarked vehicles that just track your speed - I've seen Mustangs, SUVs, and others that don't look like police vehicles until the flashing lights (hidden) come on.

    Apparently we have a broken humor detector around here. Glad to hear you're enjoying your new whip.

    Where do you live? How can you tell where the camera is? Is it mounted to an overpass and you can see a flash when you approach?
