Hello, my name is superfweaky, and I admit to being powerless over my need for speed; my addiction to ... driving it like I stole it. Ever since State Farm refused to renew, and the Texas Dept. of Public Safety nailed me with a speeding-ticket points-system surcharge, Iíve known that a radar detector is in my future. It looks like Iím also gonna need a good laser jammer, too. The sad fact is, I just canít drive 55. If thereís a good thread on this site that sums it all up for a semi-techie femme, please point me in that direction. If thereís a model most everybody knows will get me through this rough period in life, I'd be most grateful (not budget, not top of the line; I'm more of middle-of-the-road).
I searched Yahoo Answers and found this: ďEscort Passport 8500 X50; Valentine One (V1); Beltronics RX65; Beltronics STi; Always use a "rabbit" (follow another speeding car!!) A rabbit sets off instant on traps first so your radar can pick it up; Get a laser jammer. Not easy to pick the right one and not easy to install but its indispensable for jamming the cops laser gun so you have time to slow down. The radars have laser detection but its just as good as warning you to pull over.Ē Does this sound about right?
At this point--any point, really--Iíd rather not spend the money on higher insurance, tickets, radar detectorsÖI donít even know if Iím eligible for defensive driving again for this latest ticket, since Iím in the surcharge points system now.
For the record, Iíve had a spiritual awakening and donít drive like a NASCAR racer all the time now; I think just a helpful little "beep, beep, beep" reminder every now and then will help end this bad habit for good and all... (I know, thatís what the cruise control was supposed to do, but things are different this time around...)
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs...
