About two years ago, I purchased my first RD, an X50 and owned it for a year or so. Back then it was great. It saved me quite a few different times.
Fast forward to now. I just got the X50 Rev 6.1 and I am very :shock: :x :cry: It seems that the LEO's around me have COMPLETELY changed their tactics. ALL the encounters I have had so far have showed me that having a RD is worthless, at least where I live.
I have been hit with laser at night a couple times now. Tonight I ran into an LEO who was VERY sneaky with IO. I was on Hwy 96 tonight (PSL 50 mph), which is completely straight. The LEO was coming towards me. There was a group of cars about a 1/4 mile ahead of me. When he was about 100 feet from me, I got hit with a full blast of Ka.
Even driving with the best intuition, discretion coupled with the best RD - it just seems like there is no point in having an RD.
So anyways, I'd like to know why everyone else has an RD.
The reason I have one and will be keeping this one is if I am not paying attention and drift above the 5-10 MPH "buffer zone." I also love gadgets and want to keep my squeaky clean driving record.
