Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
August 2007: Driver, Know Thyself
I travel back and forth on the New Jersey Turnpike almost every weekend.
Most of the toll booths with E-Z Pass have radar telling your speed. On
my first trip with my new V1, it found the radar while I was still on
the on-ramp. I was sold! With this amazing piece of engineering I felt
V1 made me see things I would have missed with any other detector. I
was cruising along when another car started pacing me. It was a friendly
thing, he would clear the left lane, then I would, until Ka started to
go off. I slowed to 65 in the left lane. He wasnít happy. The arrows followed
a State Trooper sitting under an overpass. He was hidden behind the pylon.
I then got over after it was clear and the other driver just gave me a
nasty glare. My V1 had just saved us both, but he didn't appreciate it.
I guess that's a Jersey driver for you.
Then again, Iím one myself. Which is why I got the V1!
