    Default Ridiculous RD mounting techniques

    Don't you love when you see people who have their RD mounted at an upward angle toward the sky??

    I just want to pull them over and take their RD away from them for not having a freakin clue! :x

    I find often times when I see that they are Cobra detectors.

    yep I hate it too! I work at Wendy's and do the drive thru. just about EVERY single person that has come thru the drive thru with a radar detector has had it too far up or too far down. I wanna say something to them, but i dont want to be rude. The only exception was 2 different drivers, both with a X50. In my head I was thinking, yeah they sure know how to drive. I think anyone with the best 3 detectors are good drivers, or atleast know or try to be good, safe, cautious, whatever you wanna call it. How about the word smart, that actually sounds the best!

    Maybe these people believe they are also getting some protection from overhead aircraft?

    Walking through my parking lot, most people have one of the top 3 (overwhelmingly 8500s/X50s....) but SO MANY mount low behind their windsheild wipers.

    There was even a guy with a V1 v1.8 like that, so I left him a note. I haven't seen his car since, but I sure hope he moved it.
