Hey guys, im new here and this is my first post. I've recently became a big fan of RD's when my crappy one that i bought for $100 CAD saved my ass from getting my license suspended
i'm from ontario and they just passed a law that if you have your G2 and your caught speeding (5 -10km/h over and up I think) you can have your license suspened for up to 30 days. Meaning i would be out of a job due to the fact that my work is a 45-50 minute commute, with no bus's heading in that direction...gotta love the country side lol
ANYWAYS enough of that I was wondering what kind of gear i should pick up - I heard alot about the driver STI and it being 100% invisible but is this true? I also heard that the OPP are using something better then the spectre 4 at the moment so...(i think its a lie tho) because I dont want to spend 500-600 dollars and get caught - have it taken away and be screwed but I also hear lots of good things about valentine 1's..which should I choose.
I currently am using a RMR DLS340. I bought it from kijiji before I knew much about RD's turns out this thing sucks but atleast it saved my ass from being caught doing 30 KM/H over. I wast sure on what I should purchase but the only problem is if i buy it online I wont be able 2 have it shipped into the province. So thats where it becomes difficult, I think you can get V1's here but im not to sure.
also kinda off topic I was also interested in police scanners - Which of them is good, I want something small and conceal able so if I ever do get pulled over I could stash it away. Im looking for a good brand name thats trustable and reliable -- I need to pick up OPP and Police frequencys through GTA and Durham Region -- not sure if OPP is encrypted so...anyways I need something reliable any suggestions?
Also I will buy/make antenna's for it but i'll mount them within my car probably along the inside of the windshield to avoid having a bulky antenna sticking off the roof - anyone know how to build one? Would be much appreciated thanks.
If caught by police the fine can be around $150-$200 for possessing a RD in ontario - If its a major highway that they catch you on it can go up to around $1000 from what i've heard
Not sure about laws on scanners, anyone have any info on them for ontario?
