This is my simple comparison of laser only comparing Valentine One, Escort redline and a Bel STi. Here is the simple test. LAPD motor officer stands off the side off the side of road picks off cars heading at him sometimes he will pick off two at a time then he will just stand in the middle of the street and motion the targeted person to pull over. He is always in the same spot and this all started a few weeks ago as I have never seen this guy in my area before.
So I have been driving past this LEO and my Bel STi would never go off at all. So this past week I bought brand new Valentine One and Escort Redline. I parked my car down the street about 1000 feet in front of the LEO. The road is strait and wide three lanes on each side but on weekends you can park in one of the lanes next to the curb and I have good view of the LEO.
First the Bel STi no alerts at all yet I see LEO walk out to the middle of the street and motion the car to the side of the road. Next the Escort Redline, same as he Sti no alerts at all. Now the Valentine, Laser band alert sounds with arrow pointing forward next thing LEO walking out to the middle of the road and motioning the targeted car to pull over. The valentine alerted me every time over the next twenty minutes.
I understand that if I am the only car traveling down that road that LEO got me if I am speeding but now at least I am getting a little warning as just today on another road 35MPH zone pack of cars in front of me Valentine laser warning with front arrow checked my speed 45MPH hit the brakes one of the cars in front of me gets pulled over. This is all new in my area San Fernando Valley Ca. until about a month ago you would never see Leo on the side off the road but now I see them everywhere and there using Laser.
On side note I recently was pulled over on the 101 in Los Angeles it was late at night and I was in the #4 Lane and swerved to miss a big chunk of tire I drive older Ferrari and sits very low. CHP thinks I was drunk driving. I never had to get out of my car but the LEO saw my Bel STi and he said “what do you have that for we do not use radar”. Oh sure they don’t every time I pass CHP on the side of the road my Ka band is going crazy.
Now i am returning Redline and selling the Sti
