    Default RX65 - got busted doing 75 in a 50

    Hi All,

    Got a brand new RX65 as mentioned before. I have only 5 points left on my license and driving with caution all the time now.
    The RX65 picks up the fixed cameras with a Ka band from about 200 meters away.

    Yesterday driving on a 70 zone there is a part which goes to 50 with very little warning on a downhill striaght. I drove as usual 70 and left of the gas to slow down gradually because the car in front was doing the same and the car behind was close up behind me. At the bottom of the hill I saw a police block, I thought i was safe because the car in front passed no problem.

    The police stopped me and left the car behind me and in front go!!! Damn, he said I was doing 70 in a 50 zone, 76 to be exact!!!

    My RX65 did not go off even for 1 second, no beep no warning!!!

    What shall i do? I only have 2 points left now and how do I fight back this ...? Are they able to clock me only and let the other 2 guys go?

    Damn RX65...

    could be laser....only chance is to get a lawyer and see if they will drop it to a non-moving violation. A good lawyer should be able to do this for you.

    With so little leeway left, maybe you are best off just doing the limit for a while. There is a point where it just doesn't make sense anymore to try to speed, even with a detector.

    I was caught speeding last may and had to go to court for it doing 70mph on 55mph. Before the judge called each violator, he told everyone this. Speeding ticket is just like winning a lottery and unfortunately we got the winning ticket. He continued to say that we can get away with it for years but you will eventually get one later - the winning ticket.

    Even if your RX65 or any of the best 3 RD's goes off with a laser alert, be asured that you already got a speeding ticket. It just so happened that you were the target that day even though you had a vehicle in front of you and behind you..

    Agreed :!: Its worth spending the $$ on a lawyer, as opposed to being convicted and possibly losing your license soon thereafter if you get another ticket. Been there, done that, no thanks:!:

    He probably lasered the car in front of you and busted you for thinking thast you slick by being 2nd car. LEO's do do that.
