A few weeks ago I was in a car crash. I only had a Geo Metro that was my fiancees, so I saw no reason for a radar detector since I couldn't even make it up to the speed limit.
Anyways, we were turning at an intersection with a green beetle coming at us in the TURN LANE. We though they were going to turn, so my fiancee continued to turn onto the next street. They blew through the turn lane and hit me in the passenger seat doing about 50mph. Car was T-Boned. Luckily, I had no injuries. I like to say I beasted the car. The misses had minor injuries (bruised rib from the seatbelt) and is fine now.
The metro kept me safe somehow since the car hit right at my door.
Anyways, we got a new car. A saturn GL2 or something . Today I bought a XTR-695 since I couldn't find the Pro-78 locally. I'm back in the RD scene and might go to a 9500ix so I can be warned of red light cameras.
