okay gang, perhaps this is a newbie anxiety attack, but let me explain what happened to me today...perhaps i shoulda placed this in the beltronics forum, but i figured this could be a general issue...
so i have a buddy who owns a beltronics sti driver. anyways, he lets me borrow it (i'm in the market for a RD, but don't have the $$$ to pony up for something as costly as an sti driver). i'm on the road for my job quite a bit, and before i even get out of charlotte, i get a KA band alert about a half mile and around a corner. so i'm thinking "sweet, a save and i've only had the thing in my car for 30 minutes!"
well, as i'm progressing up I-77 i pass a county sheriff (fwiw...iredell county) and nothing happens. i'm only about 5 mph over the PSL so i'm not worried about catching a ticket, but i wondered why i got no alert of any kind. i turn around at the next exit and drive back to where the sheriff was...still no alert (???).
as i'm driving back to charlotte, i'm coming back down I-77 and i'm in iredell county again. this time, i roll through a 3 mile stretch with about 4 county sheriffs posted up along the inner median. they all have stellar hiding spots, and if i was speeding, i woulda been toast. as i drove past each one, i got ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from my buddy's sti driver?!?!
