    Default Traveling from Miami to Philadelphia

    Hello everyone,

    I need all your expertise prior commencing my long trip (1,200 Miles) through 8 States. I will travel from Miami to Philadelphia driving on I-95 for the most part and some on I-295 (Virginia) and I-495 (around Washington D.C.). I will drive from dawn to dusk stopping around N. Carolina the first day to catch some sleep. Any tips? Are detectors banned in some of the following States?

    Florida: Laser Ka K Vascar Pop
    Georgia: Laser Ka K
    S. Carolina: Laser Ka K
    N. Carolina: Laser Ka K X - Vascar
    Virginia: Laser Ka K Air Vascar Pacing
    Maryland: Laser Ka K X - Ground Vascar Unmarked Pacing
    Delaware: Laser Ka X
    Pennsylvania: Vascar Instant On K

    Thanks a lot!

    yeah, just either drive slower in VA or just watch out for the cops.

    They won't confiscate it - just gotve you a 90 dollar ticket and let you keep your detector.

    Can someone explain me the difference between Vascar, Air Vascar and Ground Vascar?
    What about Pacing and Unmarked Pacing? Any advise while crossing these States?

    Thanks again!

    Unmarked refers to an unmarked car (meaning no lightbar on the roof, no "Police" markings, etc.). Pacing - following behind you at the same speed.

    VASCAR - Visual Average Speed Computer And Recorder

    Air VASCAR - from a plane or helicopter
    Ground VASCAR - from the ground (on a hill, overpass, etc.)
