So I can’t help but notice that lately Law Enforcement is another term for Revenue Collection here in South Florida. When your not getting raped at the corner gas station it’s the Red Light Camera on the same corner that will gladly bend you over and even if you manage to get by that good luck getting by the Laser shooting Moto cops hiding in the bushes across the same damn street. So it’s no surprise that my butt cheeks have evolved and now everytime I press those brakes and hit that pushstart as that engine is about to turn over my cheeks are going into full clench mode stupid me for thinking that was sufficient Counter Measure from getting hit up by the local Revenue Collection Officers. So I smartened up and I’m in the market for some CM’s for my vehicle I’ve done some research and I think I’m going to need a Radar Detector/Laser Jammer/ and something to give me a heads up about those Red Light Cams.
I drive a G37 Sedan in Platinum (read somewhere that this isn’t exactly the best color against laser).
Mostly City driver occasional weekend road trip
Budget: would like to keep it under $1700 for RD/Jammer/Red Light Cam notification
The radar detectors I’ve looked at and im most interested in are the V1 and the Escort IQ. Would prefer a window unit.
Like everything I read about the V1 and the arrows, didn’t like what I read about it being “chatty”
Liked the Escort False lockouts (less chatty), its stealth factor (have read that LEO don’t warn anyone with an RD) and the Red Light Camera and Speed Cam Warning
For Laser after some research it seems that the Laser Interceptor system is the way to go. Just need input on whether I need rear protection and if it’s compatible with the RD that I choose.
Don’t now anything about Red Light notifications systems other than Trapster and Escort IQ. This is one of the main annoyances here. (I don’t run red lights but apparently there is a problem with the way I make right turns at red lights according to these cameras and I hear rumors they're getting you for not stopping behind the line.)
FYI – I’ve never got a speeding ticket only traffic tickets I've gotten are from Red Light Camera’s and cutting through a gas station to avoid a light.
Any suggestions and advice is greatly appreciated.
