    Default Does having your R,D make you speed?

    I just wanted to know how many of us use are radar detectors to speed? I mean I was thinking this is what the people that made these things told us the main reason for using them is to track radar and laser.

    I know I find myself going like 5 to 10 over from time to time.

    I do speed... But only in the left lane really. I might drive fast, but not stupidly fast and crazy. I drive about 15 over on the highways where it is 65 mph. I only become an a-hole on the roads when there are cars in front of me in the LEFT land not passing others and going slow. Then i start to ride the ass...

    My philosophy is:

    Left lane: for very fast passing (not slow passing or no passing at all).
    Right lane: speed limit driving (i will not get pissed if the person is not passing in the right lane)

    But yes.. when i have my detector, i am more prone to speed as compared to when i dont.

    I have to disagree, it sounds like BS, but I use my detector to remind me to let off the lead foot and to be aware that i'm drifting over the limit... :?

    I would have to say no, I actually think since I started using a RD I have slowed down... I used to speed a lot, but that seemed to change as I became more aware and thought more about it. The RD just seems to make me focus more on my speed and my surroundings.

    I go with the flow in the middle lane. An RD protects me from velocity profiling.

    when i first got a detector yes i did speed a lot

    after i discovered laser, i slowed down....

    i only speed when there are cars on the road, i do not speed if i am the only one because even my radar wont protect me from that

    i usually go bet 75-85 and sometimes hitting 90 or even 105(governed) when the car ahead of me is far ahead...

    .... i always tell myself "ill just speed up to reach that car ahead of me" till there is no one in front, then i slow down

    I speed with my RD only when theres someone in front of me, i dont want to be caught with instant on. And even if i have my RD im driving safely.

    Not to much, more of electronic hobby than anything. I just like to know where they are, speeding or not.

    Same, but I usually always kept a little above the limit, (5-10) anymore and I am waiting for a LEO to take a few points off my license. I also guess the way my car is the LEO's like to look at me as a good target, and easy money. (teen, exhaust, suspension, but no wing or body kit ****) Since I have had my OWN car for 1 year, been pulled 3 times, and frisked once "just because". Maybe its also the fact that before rd, I sped everywhere, because I never saw them, now I stay at the limit, because I encounter them almost every time I go driving. Scary
