Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
June 2008: Uncle Knows Best
Interstate 57 between Cairo, IL, and Effingham runs through the notorious
Pulaski County. I am in the lead car with my V1; my nephew is following
in his car.
He calls on the cell to ask why I was slowing down. My personal bird
dog was barking, I told him, and it pointed to the side after we went
under the overpass. He laughed with disbelief and hung up. Three miles
went by and V1 is still barking, so I called him to have look behind.
The arrow is locked in on the rear. He said it was the car we passed a
couple miles back.
“You sure?” I asked. He said, “yes.”
Almost immediately he called again. “How did you know that was a trooper?”
I told him, when my bird dog gets on point, I always look for the bird.
And it’s always there.
