Since about the time I got my redline segmented,i feel like I'm the cat! Luckily I don't have laser to deal with yet.But like @Choose Life says,I ALWAYS use my eyes first and never depend on just my detector.Just the other day,I got a weak alert on 35.5 on my R1,at the time I was running 75 in a 55,around a curve and about a mile later,there they all were with their cute little end of the month road block to check tags! One of the troopers noticed my R1,which i had turned off long before I got there.He looked me dead in the eye and said "Boy ,you know that thing is a waste of money don't you?" And I looked him dead in his eye and said Yes sir but it was given to me as a gift and I hardly ever even turn it on! I also had forgot to put my seatbelt on,and hooked it as I got the first weak alert,so guess who looked like a little mouse!
