Hello everyone, I've been lurking here for the last couple days and decided I'd register. I'm planning on purchasing a radar detector in the near future and decided to do some research, during which I stumbled upon this great forum. My name's Tim, I'm in my mid 20's, and I hail from Northeast Ohio; more specifically the Akron area.
I've only ever gotten one ticket, back in '05, for doing 72 in a 35. I've had a few close calls since then but, knock on wood, no tickets. I work part-time in IT, and go to school full-time at the University of Akron(GO ZIPS!!!). Until recently the majority of my driving occured during rush-hour, so exceeding the speed limit hasn't even been a possibility. Lately, I find myself doing quite a bit of mid-day driving and I've developed somewhat of a penchant for driving quite a bit over the PSL. I don't mind travelling at the PSL, or at the PSL+5, but if there's a straight-ish road in front of me with few to no cars I'm finding very hard to resist the urge to drive more like PSL+25~30.
In the effort to avoid getting ticketed I've decided to start investing in some ECM for my car, first a good radar detector then a good laser jammer. Don't get me wrong, I understand that all the ECM in the world isn't going to stop me from getting pulled over, and I've resigned myself to the fact that I will get pulled over and ticketed at some point.
So, I guess that brings me back to where I started this post. See everyone around the forum!
