hey all, ive downloaded the handbook and am going to read it tomorrow but figured it was worth it to post to see opinions on my personal situation.
anyone from the nw indiana area knows hobart cops are vultures. i was literally pulling into my neighborhood one day and a headlight went out infront of a cop who was hiding (keep in mind its a neighborhood, no thru streets even) and got a ticket. ive also been pulled over and given a ticket for rolling thru a stopsign when i could have sworn the car came to a complete stop.
now that its the end of the year the cops are going nuts on speeders. espically the road i travel down most, route 6. it seems like the cops work as a team, one runs radar on the other side of a hill that goes over railroad tracks and the other is following you, then they both pull you over to get the commission. its brutal. ive had friends get puled over for 1mph faster than the 35mph speed limit. my car wont even shift into overdrive at 35 lol. also, this hill if you are going even 30 at the top and dont ride your brakes you will coast to 45 with the car in neutral.
here is the speedtrap article on where im talking about
i basically only need a detector for this one road. everywhere else you are relatively ok but i drive down this road every single day and with the quiet ride and the torque my car has its extremely easy to creep up over 35 and not realize it. aside from that, you go 35 and you have traffic flipping you off. so if anyone knows of a detector that i can use on this one single road thats cheap/midrange and works well id love to know. my limit is around 200. i know that isn't alot to work with but when your tank gets 15mpg and gas is $3.15 you have to set a limit.
