A post from another siteI added some highlights)
So I was coming home from class and school is only about 2 mins away, really, 2 mins away so I never put on my seat belt from there to home, but I wish I did today.
We're at a light where one lane turns and the other one goes straight and he pulls up (motorcycle) and I'm like "oh ****.. I'm not wearing my seatbelt" and I wanted to put it on but that would have been obvious as hell.. anyway, the light turns green and he pulls me over when I start moving. He turned out to be a pretty nice guy, it went something like this
Me: Hello officer
him: hey, I pulled you over cause you weren't wearing your selt belt, I need your license and proof of insurance
*hands it over*
him: Is that a radar detector?
him: does it work?
me: you tell me, ha ha
*he goes to print up the ticket and comes back*
him: OK I just need you to sign here, buckle up!
him: Want to test your radar detector?
*goes to grab his radar gun*
So he gets in front of my car and shoots
about 7 seconds later my radar detector finally goes off
he comes to my side and says
"wow thats a long delay, I know a guy that had a 2 second delay. I guess I know which one I'm not going to buy"
So he tries it again but this time he's holding it right up to the radar detector... again 5-7 second delay.
Anyhow, I have an Escort 8500, which I thought was pretty good but there is a 7 second delay at point blank range. Thats kind of dissapointing...
So my question is, how much is a seatbelt ticket in California? I just want to pay for it and get it out of the way.. I hate going to court.
hahhaha escorts suck. i had a state trooper check mine out, it never went off. i returned it to best buy and told them what happened. then i got valentine one, and bada boomm baada bing that thing was on the dot.
dude wtf. Escort 8500? that supposed to be one of the best out there..
actually 8500 supposed to be better than V1 in reviews..
but thats one cool cop(in a way).
which 8500 do you have? the x50?
yeah I have the x50
