Well I must say... that is exactly why we have high quality equipment: Such as the X50, RX65, V1 & (STi), because even though they cost a pretty-penny up-front $300-450, look how much money they can end up saving you.
-Why did you drive without the V1 (if I may ask), the slap-on the wrist RD policy there?
-Also another thing: How far off was the speedometer (MPH@given, or %)?
I knew this question would come up. Why was I driving without it you ask. I will be honest here, just plain stupidity. It will never happen again.
As far as the speedo goes, at 65 MPH it was 5 MPH off. Remember the faster the car is going, the more it is off. The test was done at 25, 35, 45, 55, 65. At 80 MPH it would have been more like 7-9 MPH off.
it saved me awhile ago
light turned yellow, i had a chance to get through before it turned red but i would have had had to step on it....
i stepped on it then bam Ka..... let go and hit the brakes.
there was a cop in the median shooting Ka
I heard that RD are illegal in VA, what do you mean by slap on the wrist for having one? Recently I was travelling to NC and back, in NC in three days I was driving there saw just one police car on the side of the road, was not even emmiting any radar or laser... As soon as I crossed border into VA, speed on the same hwy dropped frm 70 to 65 and in two hours I was driving there I counted 16 cop cars!!! siting in the bushes, writing tickets etc. Knowing that RD is illegal, I removed my V1, thinking, I d rather be safe, set my cruise on 70 and went to sleep... The next thing I know 18 whellers start to pass me... ****, how "safe" is that????
Anyway, anybody knows what kind of roberry your are facing if found guilty of posessing RD crime agains humanity?
The penalties for having a RD in VA are laughable compared to that of the laws in many provinces in the land of our neighbors to the north, thats what I mean.Originally Posted by shuradan
From what I understand, the punishment fir this crime against nature, is a $100 fine. They cannot confiscate your RD. Thats cheaper than a reckless or speeding ticket.

Sorry about your bad luck! Use the RD next time.
