    Default Got my first RD today...

    So I finally got what I needed, a new Escort 8500 x50, my dad lives in Maryland so I had him pick it up for me (I'm in VA). Can't wait to test it out, especially considering that I live by the stretch of I-95 that is now one of two special No-Speed zones in the state where fines can reach $1000+ from a single ticket.

    I was wrong, up to $2500 in fines from a single ticket, part of a new no-speed zone test, there are two such zones in the state, one being I-95 from the Fairfax county border to Quantico Marine base, BE DAMN CAREFUL driving through there, hehe:

    Boy, if there was ever somewhere where you want to have a radar detector - this is it.

    Why didn't you buy from Roy?!? He has overnight shipping you know and he does ship to VA. I'm disappointed in you.

    BTW, speeds of 80mph or faster(or 20 over the limit) in VA can be written as a wreckless driving ticket. For example if you get caught going 80 in a 65 zone you can be written a wreckless. Maximum penalty for wreckless driving in VA is $2,500 fine, 12 months in jail, and 6 months license suspension. Never heard of anyone getting the maximum though.

    I dont care how "stealthy" I was, I wouldnt risk a 2500 speeding ticket. Just do the limit in those 2 zones!!!!!
