Since most of us strive to obtain the best (most sensitive) RD, can there be practical limits to the amount of warning time needed for your driving before the long alert warnings start to bother you with microwave speed radar?
Of coarse driving speed does enter the picture as well as various terrain situations so my question will be in three different categories:
City (lots of traffic and buildings)
Urban (small towns with curving roads and flat or hilly areas)
Rural (interstates or sparsely populated areas)
So when you answer, please indicate the range of speed you drive at for the category chosen.
For me, city at speeds under 30 MPH: 3-5 seconds,
urban at speeds 30-45 MPH: 5-10 seconds and rural at speeds of 45 - 60 MPH : 10-15 seconds but 15 - 30 seconds on interstates at 60 - 75 MPH.
Any alerting times longer than the above starts to get me aggravated and I reach for the mute button.
So what's your level of time for adequate alerts before you reach for the mute button or have auto muting settings reached?
