    True. However, you know who DOES know whose license is suspended?.... the neighbors. So when Fred borrows Andy's car, gets stopped for speeding and the car gets confiscated; I highly doubt that John is going to let Fred borrow his car.

They can go to jail after routine traffic stops or if they cause injury.
    There is no interest in Law, Order, or any form of Justice in this country at this point. It may as well be the Wild West out there on a daily basis.

    Which means they do nothing.

    I'm just over that, they'll pass me at a decent pace of probably 120 or just above.

    One time I was going down a single lane, cop behind me, tailgating my ass pretty hard because I'm sticking to speed limit of 50... ****er throws on his lights so he can pass me, saw him 1 mile up the road just parking up to set up a speed trap.
    Yeah, have to tell you, that's not a speed trap.

    Not really. A lot of them don't use radar anymore. They use lasers. Those won't pick up lasers.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    actually it does pick up scatter and has saved me more than once. The lasers are used more in summer, less in winter. I have a blocker for that as well but it was a waste of money as most of the midwest uses KA. Laser requires the officers to point specifically and shoot and he must be sitting still or he will get a false reading. Lasers also do not perform well against darker colored cars as there is nothing shiny to target. I have not had in ticket in 3.5 years now since buying the Redline.
