Got Pulled and removed the radar detector from the window to put it in the glove box; since, I figure it irritates some cops."
The cop came up and said, "I got you doing 12 over the speed limit. Oh, based on the suction cups you left on your windshield, I know you have an Escort or Bel radar detector, but it is not illegal, so why not use it or if you were bother to take it down?"
I said, "You and I both know most officers dislike detectors, and I feel the contact will usually go better without it." He chuckled and said, "Both you and I want a pleasant contact. Which one do you have?"
I said, "I have an Escort 8500 x50." I then showed it to him and said, "I even visit RadarDetector.net forums to learn more about it." He smiled and said, "You need to watch out for even 1 dot with Ka because by the time you see it, I am very close regardless of your detector." I chuckled.
He went to his car and came back in about 3 minutes and said, "I was just checking and it seems all your paperwork is in order. I too visit those forums, and since nothing you did was unsafe for the conditions, I am going to let you off with a warning."
Thanks, whoever you were.
