My girlfriend was coming home from work the other night at about 1:30am... She passed a sheriff going the opposite direction, and realized how fast she was going. He whipped around, followed her for a bit, then pulled her.

Lemme go ahead and say yes, I need to get her an RD, I'm currently in looking at Uniden's probably, just one of the DFR series since she doesn't drive as quick as I do. Normally she drives the speed limit, but she wanted to get home.

She thought for sure she was gonna get a ticket. But a few months ago I put a NC Troopers Association sticker on our cars, as I have family in the police department both in NC and Missouri, and we like to show our support. He asked her about it, and she told him. He ran her license, and came back and told her to have a good night and to slow down. She was blown away!

Now I'm not saying the sticker did it, maybe he was just in a good mood. But 6 months ago she got pulled over for something similar, and got a ticket. We were so excited her let her off with not even a warning ticket!

Wow, that's almost a miracle! Glad it worked out for her! In my area in eastern NC the deputy sheriff's never used to run any radar, but now that the NCHP is switching to Stalkers I've noticed several deputy sheriff's are now shooting 35.5. Somehow I just knew that it was just to damn easy fighting the Stalkers! I can't prove it but I have a feeling they are getting some of the retired 35.5 setups from the NCHP. They are using I/O as well.

That's good to hear she was let go. Hopefully you don't talk to your family and friends who are police about this stuff.

About CMs? My uncle in STL has been in my car and knows, and he honestly doesn't give a s*it haha. He's a helicopter pilot now, he could care less about speeding. He's never been a patrol car guy, always special stuff in the force. So yeah, he knows I have all my CMs, but he doesn't know how the ALP works or anything
