  1. Re: Epic Fail: Cop driving way beyond their skill level. Great Dash Cam!

    You can? This is an honest question. I know it's a crappy video but I couldn't see anything blinking, and it did look like they slowed down almost to the point of stopping.



    No signal (that I...
  2. Re: Clover man puts up own road block to slow speeders

    I propose a law:

    Anybody can get speed bumps installed anywhere they want, but drivers are required to honk their horns when they hit them. The precious children would be more likely to notice a...
  3. Re: New traffic laws: Drivers can lose license for failure to stop for school buses

    I'm flabbergasted. Every school bus I've seen has a flip-out stop sign that looks exactly like every other stop sign in the country. Someone who doesn't understand that doesn't need their license...
  4. Re: E-Volo First Manned RC Aircraft (This Guy is the MAN)

    That's what I'm kind of confused about... My understanding is that conventional helicopters benefit from ground effect up to a height of about 1/2 their span of their rotors. The rotors on this thing...
  5. Just discovered a new countermeasure...

    ... exhaust vapor.

    Had a pretty basic encounter this morning, PSP trying to hide behind a bridge, but apparently he didn't realize it was so cold that his exhaust was visible and drifting toward...

  7. Re: Camera Cop Has Actually Increased the Number of Missouri Speeders

    *banghead* I don't even know where to begin... except to say that anyone who actually believes that will, 99% of the time, either piss people off by driving too slow, or eventually have a collision...

    Re: Insurance company monitoring your car!

    Well, now that I'm searching on it, yes, I do have them confused. It is Geico that has the radar detector clause and that gives laser guns to police departments. Google is a wonderful thing![/QUOTE]...

    I'm pretty sure you have Progressive confused with Geico?

    Re: Insurance company monitoring your car!

    You know what's funny... literally 15 minutes ago, I was out on some deserted country road braking to a stop from different speeds. Deer season is coming up and I think it's important to practice. I...
  11. Re: Amish Men Found Guilty of Traffic Violations

    Netwizz, do you live in a place where there are Amish? I do, so I have a little experience driving around them. There are good reasons for them to need warnings.

    Consider where the Amish are...

    Re: Audi cars = K-band pollutors ?

    BMW, Audi, Mercedes. Where are all three of them based?

    Germany.

    What country is home to the one famous "Autobahn," the only network of public highways in the world with no absolute maximum...

    Re: What is a cheap but reliable fast car?

    Is this about small cars in general or just Hondas? I'm genuinely curious, because you've been in law enforcement longer than I've been alive. Every manufacturer I can think of has produced small...
  14. Re: 1990 escort..how do i test it...wont work

    Congratulations on your purchase. An x50 should serve you well. Also, your intuition is right; you are half naked with just a CB. I consider both a CB and a detector to be essential for serious...
  15. Re: 1990 escort..how do i test it...wont work

    X is dead; I've had it disabled with confidence for about four years with no problems and I haven't seen anyone report it being used anywhere in the state. There have been reports of some Ka, but...

    Re: What is a cheap but reliable fast car?

    Your "rabbits" are the truckers on the CB and blind faith, basically. It's been my experience that once you hit 85 and up you're pretty much on your own.

    Re: Better Than Lil' Wil - Continued

    If you do use a generic magnet mount base, make sure it's good quality and the bottom is completely covered by heavy vinyl and there are no exposed sharp edges. I tried using a cheap one from the...

    Re: Better Than Lil' Wil - Continued

    I'm looking at a fiberglass antenna and my Wilson 1000 magnet base right next to each other... they both have male threads, and the antenna's threads are much smaller. I'm not sure what you'd see if...

    Re: Better Than Lil' Wil - Continued

    I'm pretty sure a fiberglass antenna wouldn't even fit in the Wilson 1000 base. You can buy magnetic bases with the 3/8" threads that most fiberglass antennas use, but I don't think it's a great...
  20. Re: Diverging Diamond" Interchange at Dorsett and 270 Has Motorist Driving in Wrong l

    Well, making left turns is pretty unpleasant and inefficient, so I have to give them credit for trying something to minimize the problem. However, I think they're going to need many more signs...

    Re: PSP--End of an era....

    LED light bars are an abomination. At night, I can't see anything around or in front of them except glare until I'm almost the whole way past the cruiser.
  22. Re: MO - Foristell now allows officers to stop motorists for not wearing seat belts

    Now that's just silly. Make it the law either statewide or nowhere.
  23. Re: Pulled over for flashing headlights in NC

    I seriously object to that reasoning. If that's true, then why not just have random roadblocks everywhere to search for kidnappers? Why only target people who are speeding? Are kidnappers incapable...

    You know, I'm sorry the kids lost their kitty, but I have a general rule: for anything that doesn't threaten my car, life or freedom, I'm not going to take extreme measures to avoid it. I'll gladly...

    Re: Extended cable lengths

    If it were me I'd just take a telephone cord, cut off the plugs and some very short lengths of the original cord, then solder some beefier wires in between. Caveats: I've never actually done this and...
