For some reason the officers around here like to sit on the side of the road, in the median or even on on-ramps and wait till you pass to shoot you with radar. And a lot of them either don't turn their gun on or wait until the last second when im already close to them (or past them even), or my RD doesn't detect them to well. Which is why I rely on my eyes a lot of the time and why this "mod" below would be worthwile.
I was wondering what you guys think and if it would be possible (or legal even) to wire in a toggle switch in the brake light line so you can turn them on or off when needed. It would be nice to have them turned off at the swtich when im one of the only nuts speeding down the highway at night and I spot an officer who I know will radar me when I go past him.
Obviously, if I start riding the brakes with the brake lights on like normal, odds are he will see them light up and get suspicious. ~NOTE: I don't know if its even posssible depending on the angle if your looking in your rearview or sideview mirrors to see someone light up their brake lights since headlights (especially when on high) will blind you.~ As long as he didn't shoot me with radar while I was speeding, he really has no reason to pull me over right? Im sure he would atleast follow me though and run a few certain 6 digits of mine. Har har.
I don't know, tell me what you guys think. Of course it could also be a safety issue if I were to accidently leave them off when driving around town or something. Im aware of that though. I've always been weary that when I see a cop who hasnt radared me yet (atleast my RD hasn't detected anything) that If I slow down and he seems me slowing down, he would attempt to give me a ticket anyway. Or atleast a warning.
