My Shenanigans Have Gone High Tech

After years of law enforcement not agreeing with my "robust" driving style and a super close call Friday night which would have cost me my license I decided to buy a radar detector.  But I didn't get just any radar detector, I got the Escort Passport 9500ix, this baby sees all!! It has built in GPS which keeps up to date with the location of any speed cameras and also uses it to learn false signals.  So you drive by a place that is sending out a false signal like an automatic door and it beeps, but after driving by the same spot three times the detector learns and stops signaling at that location. I got to see it in action this morning because my kid's school has one of those warning boxes that displays you approaching speed and the radar detector flipped out four blocks away!

I've never had one before and I know they aren't illegal but I feel totally devious using it......AND I LOVE IT!  If your interested here's a link to more info. Escort Passport 9500ix
