So I was jsut driving along here in Mississauga, ON minding my own business when I notice an undercover sitting at the lights next to me, and the cop is staring me down hard. This is nothing too unusual as I drive a car that attracts some attention usually, but he keeps looking at his gear and then at me. I reach down and unplug the RX casually as though I'm playing with the gear shifter, but he keeps the death stare on. As soon as wel leave the light the cherries come on and it's game over. He tells me he knows I've got the detector and asks me to give it up willingly or he'll search the car.
I didn't have a choice but to hand him the unit. I got a $170 ticket for posession of the device. No doubt he pocketed the damn thing too. So now I'm out roughly $550 altogether for the detector and the ticket.
I have to say, in Canada, that box hasn't done a damn thing for me. Only in the states when I've travelled through Michigan or New York has it ever light up with anything meaningful.
This was my first detector and I'm pretty dissillusioned about the whole thing. It didn't even chirp as he was sitting right next to me.
