I know everyone has their "omg, cops" story. Mine isn't too bad, but I'm starting to get paranoid. Driving into Worcester earlier this evening. Two lane divided highway (2 in each direction). Marked speed is everywhere from 65 to 50mph. No one travels the limit. Fairly light traffic, I trail two cars from Jersey doing about 10-15 over. 3/4 into the city they peel off and I resume my 65-70 in 50. I'm a stickler for using signals and not using the left lane if I don't need too. Make my way through light traffic to the city limits and head up the on-ramp to a major highway (RT290). Immediately notice headlights ON MY ASS out of nowhere. Immediately realize its a trooper. I'm very perceptive of headlight patterns in traffic and didn't notice this guy tailing me. I play cool and move along with traffic. Get off my exit, signaling the whole way. I get 300 feet from the ramp and the guy hits the blues. Here we go. Put on my cool face and greet the trooper with a cordial "good evening officer". Hes polite, I hand him my license and reg and tell him honestly that I was going too fast. He then informs me that he was tailing me for 10 miles and that apparently I had been going 10-20mph over the limit and passed 40 cars (not true). He then very nicely points out that I didn't signal off the highway (I did) and was weaving before I exited. I swallow my pride and play along. He then lectures me on how unsafe my driving was and that someone with a clean record like me doesn't need to screw it up. Hands me my info back and leaves. I drive fast, I drive aggressively. But I do it safely. But this whole thing has me paranoid like a stoner. I've never had a radar detector before and I've gone almost 5 years with no tickets whatsoever. But I'm done guessing and my luck will run out. And to think this guy was following me from quite a distance, and still tracking my speed makes me worried enough to stay within 5-7mph of the limit now. Opinons on detectors on the market? Looking at the Beltronics 8500 X50, Passport GX series and even the V1. I don't need GPS, red light camera info or speed camera tracking. But I need a good rural/highway unit. I drive 90 miles a day and its mixed driving both ways. Cliffnotes: Get pulled over, coolface cop. Need detector under $250. Willing to buy used.
