Re: f**k got a speeding ticket

Haven't had a fuzz buster since I bought mine and I am ticket free... knock on wood. They happen though, it is the nature of things.

Mine has saved my ass countless times.... Not useless against laser as the stray rays hit the detector before the cop necessarily aims at you. It's a great early warning system and like I said, saved my ass many times.... Still ticket free (knocking on wood)

Yea . Lazer will be detected but it won't matter do to there accuracy. Can't fight those . But I am to understand that in my area. If you pleas your ticket down ,the money stays in the area instead of it going to the state. So I hope that's still true .

I'd say I see cops laser 10% of the time at most so definitely worth picking up, I have the iPhone Cobra detector, worth every penny

Yea. My second total .
I've had radar detectors in the past but hadn't gotten the extra funds for one for the g8. I got a cobra that hasn't done me any wrong but when I threw it in the g8 ,it went nuts. Apparently there is some kinda interference between the cobra and the speed sensor for when your using the cruise control. Or at least that is what I was told . As soon as I plug it in ,it just goes off and keeps going non stop .

I have to admit, cursing speed in these cars is 90. I would swear I'm doing 70, look down and see 90+.

Next time you get pulled over, tell the officer that a cop on the board said it is not your fault and you should get a warning.

51 is more than 40... you were speeding.

Pay to play.

Tickets suck!! I have had one of those Rocky Mountain Radar jammers since about 2002 and havnt got a ticket since I bought it. I recenlty read about all the controversy on these and am gonna have a cop buddy of mine help me test it. I just cant see how I havnt got a ticket for this long if it doesnt do something though, I speed all the time. Especially since I got my G8, 55 is practically standing still!!

for 15 over? lol. go to court like everyone else by yourself. Don't need to make up any stories just be professional, well dressed and honest. Refer to the judege as "your honor" make contact and truly act sorry. They'll plea you down to a non-moving or maybe even a parking ticket. You'll still pay the fine and might have to go to class but it's better than more points and increased insurance.

generally you just show up on a date they give you with 50 other people. you see the prosecutor, they cut you a deal. you then go to the judge and he generally agrees. It's a good 2 hour adventure but worth it.

time to detune and put a block behind the accellerator pedal. lol

just kidding. I know how it feels, got popped one time passing a slow moving semi truck on a rural road at 85mph in a 55, I saw the sherriff's lights and was able to safely get stopped to the side of the road before he got on the road to chase me. No one can outrun the motorola, haha

Not like you have a mod budget (lol) but if you did, this ticket may have impacted it. ha ha
