If you read any forums where LEO's hang out and they are discussing traffic stops, if they pull over someone with a RD, "They ARE Getting A Ticket-No Reductions!" & they won 't be talking themselves out of it either! I have read this over and over!
Harshest ticket I got 15 - 20 years ago, the LEO pulled me outta my car and dug around for my Crap Cobra RD. He said he detected it! NO WAY was I going to have something that told them to look at me again!
Even though it's legal in my state to drive with a RD. Knowing that many LEO's have that attitude, I will only buy undetectable detectors, such as the STi, Redline, etc... And then hang it behind window tint with no cord exposed for less attention.
How many of you have switched to a stealth model and how many of you don't care because it's legal to have a RD.
Obviously, if you slam on the brakes, the car's front end diving or brake lights give you away, a stealth detector doesn't help that. But when asked why I hit the brakes, I reply because I saw them, or the car in front of me hit the brakes, etc. they usually respond "okay".
Undetectable or not & why.
