My last ticket was given to me courtesy of "instant-on" radar and cost me around $250 in lawyer and court costs.

He said I was doing 81. I was doing at least
81, so I didn't argue. That also cost me around $250.
Neither time did my detector do me any good, so I have stopped using one and now I try to keep my speed within 10 MPH of the limit or stay with traffic if its really hustling. I'm also trying to set a better example for the kids (one of whom is now driving).
However, detectors have saved my bacon many times in the past, so I may revisit the issue once my car shows up.
