Re:Cops, Valentine One
I know why you get tickets...this is not the way to talk to the
pigs...er Police officers.
Don't BS em, Be polite and don't deny what you were obviously doing.
I own 3 red cars and I drive way to fast and get pulled over way too
often but it's rare that I get more than a warning. Cops are generally
not stupid. Don't treat them that way and you will have a better chance
of getting yourself off the hook.
As far as the Valentine one. Fantastic detector. Best I have ever had.
You have to buy it through V1 though. No discounts. I know they have
"reconditioned" units available from time to time at a discounted price.
