i got pulled over 3 times in one month. the first time i was speeding at 45 in a 30 zone but it was the middle of the night and nobody was on the road. apart from a TAG van, which dont usually stop traffic. She said if she was a traffic bobby i would have got a ticket but instead she gave me a producer. Second two times were in salford (near rockly for the benefit of silly sod) after pickin 'somethin' up but both times i got a producer. I been driving for almost 3 years and never had a ticket or points on my card.
B astards only pulled me over cos i got a shaved head... police in US might be polite but all the ones i came into contact with in UK have been nasty people.

Cant borrow a car or get a ride that early. Truly pissed off right now folks!!!
Judging by my experience on the roads here people don't use the indicator lights anyway so I'm sure you'll be fine without them

Well that's one way to see the country. Why leave out Hawaii and Alaska then?

lol think you need to change your user name to "Leadfoot".

Yes, the troopers are usually very polite and courteous and love to hear the accent as they bend me over and **** me in the ass for another ticket for being 10 or 15mph over the limit.
Hey rushman,
Whats a good radar detector to get for reasonable money... should i avoid the $100 ones? Just picked up my new TT and dont want to hike my insurance already!

Ive got the Valentine 1 in one car and the Passport 9500i in the other. I think the Valentine is better but dont make the mistake of thinking its going to warn you miles in advance. Sometimes you can actually see the troopers before the bloody thing goes off. Thats because the sneaky bastards dont turn their radars on until the point where you have no chance of slowing in time.

Having said that..I'd have been banned 2 years ago without it.
