Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
March 2002: I Slowed, They Didn't
I have been a devout Passport user for ten years. Having to buy yet another model to get the up-to-date protection
was always an irritation With
that in mind, Passport sent me a special rebate on the new 8500. I thought about it, then did some research. I chose V1 instead.
Over the years, Passport had done well but not well
enough. There were tickets,
always coming over hills or
rounding bends into the guns of waiting cruisers.
Just one week after receiving my V1, I was northbound
on IL 255 approaching an overpass. Several
parasites were on my tail. V1
gave a quick Ka chirp.
slowed, just in case. The
crowd kept going.
As I topped the overpass, there sat the biggest state
police group I have ever seen. Each of them picked a target and made a
collar. I easily drove
through the frenzy. I was on
the numbers, all the others were exceeding.
After Passportís history of waving me into such
situations, Iíve become a V1 believer. With earlier warnings, radar
location, and upgrades instead of having to buy new detector, Iím with
V1 for the long haul.
