Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
April 2002: Attila the Weedeater
I'm an airline employee as well as a
professional driver for folks who summer in NY and winter in FL. During each migration I have the pleasure of driving Lexus,
Infiniti, and the likes. About
a year ago I was running one of the cars north when I was "popped"
by a Maryland State Trooper. Upon
returning home wounded, I purchased my very own Valentine.
I absolutely love it.
The very next trip north was an
entirely different sortie. While
traveling on I-95 through North Carolina, my V1 warned "ahead." The warning was slow. I
maintained speed. After a
mile or so, it grew more intense. I
decided to get legal. As I
continued, the Radar Locator changed to "side," then
"behind.” I did not
see a cruiser or anything that looked undercover.
V1 was silent a few moments, then
erupted in a full-scale warning “behind.” By that time I was back in the fast lane at level cruise. I slowed instantly and moved over. The Mustang behind me didn’t take the cue.
Watching my mirror, I saw a cruiser
emerging from the median through swaying weeds. No wonder I missed him; he was hiding in green stuff as high as his
roof. He ran down the
Now I've had at least ten New
York-to-Florida trips with V1. In
my professional opinion…VALENTINE ONE ROCKS!!! Keep up the excellent work. I
recommend it to everyone.
