cool Advice on Radar detectors, and do detector detector detectors work?

I do most of my fun driving at night down mostly deserted desert roads, can see lights coming for 10km, so am right to do whatever i feel safe doing. So dont need a radar detector there.

Also I speed along the freeways, not often being passed, doing around 125 true km, though my speedo says 135,lol (over 25 over is no good for your licence). When theres a fair amount of traffic, they have a very small chance of catching you speeding anyway. A radar would tell you they are there though, and as there are many cars on the road, they wouldnt know who had the detector. So is a little bit useful here.

But what about on normal country roads, where you see a car every, say 3 to 15 minutes. This is where a detector could help me, and is where I keep getting caught, always by oncoming radar :-( How good are detector detector detectors? will they detect the cops detector detector before the detector detector detects my detector?

Speed cameras in city streets do me no harm :-) dont need to detect them either.

I've just got all my points back, so can afford the 10 point penalty if one day am caught with the radar detector, as long as i have had lots of fun for a few years before hand :-)!!

How hard are they to hide?

I hear cops CANNOT search your person if all they suspect you of is having a radar detector, they can search your car however. So is this the game? You put it in your daks if pulled over?

So.How much? whats the best? where from?internet?

Re: Advice on Radar detectors, and do detector detector detectors work?

a guy in this town was fined for having one in his car about a month ago. i think it was $1000 fine but dont know about his license.
dont think they detected it maybe just come across it searching his car??
do cops even have detectors here? wouldnt think thered be much call for them.

Lets see how many times we can put detector in a sentence that makes sense

Re: Advice on Radar detectors, and do detector detector detectors work?

i normally drive at 120 - 140 kms out side of town day or night, as you can see for miles from were i live

As for police searching cars, dont know if the law has changed in the last 5 years, the one and only time the police have searched my car, before searching it they asked if they could, and said if i refuse they have the right to detain me and the car in the current location while they get a search warrant then they can search it, since i didnt have any thing to hide and being 100kms from home i let them search the car

Easy to hide, just rip it off the dash and throw it under the seat :)

Price varies on model, ive seen $100 up to $1000.

Im selling one for 200 otherwise Internet is your best bet.
