He's my Valentine, and I will love him forever.
If you are like me and 1) drive too fast for proper company or 2) have to drive fast because it's ingrained in you and there is no other way to drive and 3) are not cute enough to talk your way out of a ticket, you need to meet Mr Valentine.
He lives in the Buckeye, not far from the river. And though he has lots of friends, he comes from a small family. Himself. He is not found elsewhere. I love this guy. He has a one track mind: speed. *taking a personal moment here*
Literally, I have saved over $3,000^ in tickets since I first started seeing him. He has been there with me through the brightest days, and the darkest nights. Through the cities and the vast stretches of highway, we ride along in quiet companionship. He breaks the silence only to warn me of impending danger. Damn, I love the strong, silent type.
His reach goes on for miles, his ever watchful sensors guarding me in a 360* circle. I'm so safe, so protected, so loved within his electronic grasp. He is faithful, loyal, and unwavering.
Yea, I know... "whyncha marry him?" Well, I just might! He won't cheat on me with other detectors, won't leave me when I need him most, and he'll protect me in all weather, in any area^^.
Seriously, folks... wander on over to valentine1.com and find out about him... he's suuwweet. Especially for those who, like me, do a LOT of driving.
He has been tested thoroughly by yours truly, along with Captain Crazy, side-by-side (literally-in the same vehicle sitting on the dash) against the Escort Passport. He's got more range on the X and K bands, within hundredths of a second on KA, and laser, same (not that it matters, by the time you hear it, you're toast.) Heh. I haven't even bothered with testing against the low-end Cobra models, or the other cheapass detectors you get at Radio Shack for $69.99. Save that money for the first ticket you get your first day out. He comes fully loaded with directional arrows that alert you to where the sneaky bastards are hiding, and counters for the "fake out" bears. I've been using him for 7 years now. He went with me on my first big trip to Atlanta GA, and he has remained with me through every backwoods, podunk, hick town in between.
^based on the average cost of $385 per ticket not given because of advance warning and ability to slow down or otherwise maneuver, court fees, and attorney fees to reduce or eliminate given tickets. Also, the headache of having points on your license for 3 years (mine is finally completely clean!) is gone.
^^not legal in all states. (Not that there aren't ways around it.) Know your laws;know your area.
