    Default All In Favor Say "EYE"

    I can't tell you how many times my eyes have saved my a$$ this year. I think about 6 or 7 times to date. Today was no exception. I was on a four lane wher you can see for about 2 miles. There were probably 3 or 4 cars in front of me for a mile os so.

    Way up the road I saw a black and white...probably 1.5 miles off. I was doing about 80 in the 65 so I slowed down. He was about 1/2 mile away when I got down to 65 mph and he had never pulled the trigger on any of the cars in front of me. At that point I assumed he wasn't even clocking folks. Then at 1/4 mile or less (maybe only 250 yards) my 8500 went full alert K band. I was the only one he zapped out of the cars in front of me for at least a couple miles.

    Why in the hell he chose me I'll never know. I mean I'm driving a 5 year old 4x4 Dodge Ram covered in mud!

    It's obvious LE has turned the power waaaaay down on their radar units so they can catch more people using RDs. But hey are shooting themselves in the foot. Now they have to be right on top of you to get a lock. By that time you've seen 'em coming for days.

    Anybody else relate?

    Your dad's a pig?!?!?!

    What a coincidence. My oldest son is a pig. He never washes his car. He refuses to make his bed and dirty clothes are piled so deep in his room, the floor has seen sunlight in 5 years.

    Default low power?

    I am seeing the low power thing too. Today in broken arrow I got hit w/ ka constant on....oncoming pd. I got a ka alert of 3, then5, then full that quick. The detector was my wifes 925. I was doing 10 over, and an instant reaction just got my speed down to 45.

    If ya keep your eyes open you can usually beat 'em to the punch. When son number two goes skiing with me I put him in the front seat. The little fart has 20/10 vision in both eyes. Well not too little, he's 20 years old now. I can't tell you how many times he has seen 'em on a long stretch of interstate at almost a full mile.

    Visual is 100% proof positive ID. That beats ANY radar detector.
