Hey. I drive a 2008 Suzuki and was ticketed back in April of this year. I was on I-20 headed West near Thompsom , GA. I was headed down this two lane interstate with few traffic in the fast lane. (STUPID!) I was rolling @ about 105 mph...I was comming up on a trucker REAL quick going about 75 mph. I slowed to about 95 mph and crested the hill...and BOOM! I was caught...clocked @ 94 mph in a 70 mph zone. I was 17 yrs old and scared to death! Got off real easy. Fine was $200, didnt have to go to court, and I paid an extra $75 to do a monitoring progarm. The watched my driving for three months and if I went without another violation (which iI did), then the ticked was dropped. No points, no record of it, and no ins. increase...thank goodness. So i decided it was time for some protection. Im 18 yrs old and in college so money is kinda tight. I was on a budget and ordered the Bel RX65..i hope its a good one for my needs. I usually dont run 105 mph so i hope it works out. I plan on hardwiring it with a smart cord hardwire kit. I do have a 6 inch tint strip, will that interfer with the range of the detector? And i also ordered an aux. speaker for the unit as well. Im excited to learn about this and I hope I made an okay choice. Any tips, advice, suggestions
Thanks so much for yall's help.
P.S - That day last April I also learned to NEVER run fast ALONE...i was stupid..i guess you learn from you mistakes..
