Wow. I'm proud of this thread. When I read, "I'm tired of getting tickets." I was sure that the OP would be followed with 100 "then don't speed, dumbass" posts.

Glad to see the ol' forum hasn't gone totally to .

so this is fact or 'you think' ?

cuz like i said there's a DPS cop who camps out on 99 southbound, and parks right off the road at where HEB is, and HEB sets off my V1. so he knows people will often disregard that alarm.

I haven't ran into that issue though. I think the likelihood of a policeman being in the exact same gps location all the time is slim.

Also the speed trap locations are shared. When we travelled to Barber this year I was being notified of speed traps in states that I had never travelled through because other passport owners had saved the locations on their devices.
and is that any diff then remembering where the radar often false alarms, most likely people drive the same way to work or whatever over and over, and know where the falses are at.

so the escort has wireless i-net built in or are the speed trap locations sent in from users and built in at the factory?

You can hold the speed limit (within 5mph over) on your commute for over a year and still get ticketed. Some of these are called "speed traps". Where for no F*** reason whatsoever the posted speed limit changes by 15 down and then up 15 after 100 yards. Then, you may actually be paying attention to the road, but miss a sign or two, and cop taxes you +$100.
Yea, happend to me a few weeks back. Im definitely shelling out $300 plus for a detector now.

it was well worth it for me. i have over 50 saves from what i would have thought would be sure tickets ranging from 10 over to 60 over or a possible race than i didn't partake in because of a radar signal

Oh, I'm with you 100%.

.. i had my license taken away for 1 1/2 years ! for tickets in "california".. not even in texas!
I didn't want to pay them, they were speed traps
and fuc**ng bill went up to $5300 !!!! out of 2 tickets!! how about that!!

Arizona speed limit is 75mph.. so here you come all happy, doing 80 mph, then all the sudden, you're in cali, no signs
and next thing you know, you are getting pulled over for doing 80 in a "55"... how convenient for these sorry border as* towns huh!

then followed my license suspension, and I didn't have a choice but
to send Schwat... whaterever his austrian's waco is (not generalizing)
my hard earned cash..

I say radars are in !

not sure what your "screamer" is but mine is just an External speaker
here is a good site about radars etc.

I had a radar in my shop for a few years and only turned it on to play with drivers on the freeway. I'd set it to max range and turn it on for a few secs randomly and then watch the brake light show.
