Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
July 2009: Afternoon Light Shows
On a sunny afternoon in Vancouver, WA, when I was coming home on highway 14E, I got
a Ka alert. It was just one light, but it was persistent, so I thought there might be
some business up ahead. I slowed to the posted and moved over in front of a black Navigator
from the spendy state--didn't cut him off, but he was irritated.
By this point V1 was speaking a little stronger. The Navigator notched over a lane
and gave me a very dirty look as he passed me on the right. I just smiled back because
he was going about 10 over and the V1 was showing seven lights. When he topped the hill
he was suddenly all red lights too, brake lights, because there was a WSP on the right
shoulder shooting Ka out his rear antenna. Said patroller rolled out behind the ‘gator
and lit up yet another light show. As the Lincoln was slowing, I passed him and pointed
towards my V1—it's high so he couldn't see it, but I think he got my meaning—and gave
him the adios wave. Oh, boy, I love revenge!
V1 is an amazing product that surpasses all of my expectations every time it speaks.
