Hello everybody, I thought I'd post my latest run-in with the law!
I got busted by a cop today. He clocked me doing 37 in a 25 zone. I got absolutely no warning from my detector until he nailed me, which is when the full blast of K10 hit me. Does that mean he was using POP? I was the only vehicle on the road so I guess there were no reflections to warn me.
I'm still curious though, is there anything I should have done? I have a Bel Rx65 and it's always in autoscan.
1. I think the autoscan always reverts to highway, since I get x band alerts even at 20MPH. I've programmed city to no X. How is it supposed to work?
2. I get pretty heavy falsing on X. Should I turn it off altogether? I'm in california.
3. Should I turn on POP alerts?
The cop was right behind me and I had no chance to hide the detector. Luckily he was pretty cool about the whole thing and let me away with a warning.
Any other tips that people might be willing to share with me? Do you always drive with one foot on the brake? I think it took me about a second to respond to the alert. It was just so loud (K10!), i was stunned!
