Hey guys. Glad to have come across this forum to develop my knowledge of radar detectors and other ticket deterrents.
A bit of back ground: Iím 24 and rarely ever speed. Iíve had a clean record for over 3 years now and it was ruined just about a month ago. I was driving back from a girl's home whom Iíve been seeing. It was a bad night and I being very stupid, actually extremely idiotic (a bit much to drink). I ended up being pulled over and clocked at 101 at a 55. The leo was kind enough to only ticket me at 75 and didnít ask for a sobriety test. Iím lucky I didnít kill myself that night. I honestly deserved to have my ass dragged into jail. I came out of it with a 240 dollar ticket.
So thatís where I am now. Iíve been putting off buying a radar detector since I got my license. It was initially going to buy the 9500ix but as I was reading these forums for a few days my decision changed to the V1. What persuaded me were the arrows and the sensitivity that the detector offered. I hope Iíve made the right decision and that I wonít be missing all the bells and whistles that the 9500ix has. At least I have 30 days to decide that.
