Just wondering if anyone in the SF Bay Area has gottne pulled over for speeding. I've been doing a lot of speeding on freeways and streets and luckily haven't been caught yet...knock on wood.

I almost never see cops on 680 (the whole stretch between 280 changeover to sacramento, not counting SF Bay west side). 880 and 101 are pretty damn notorious for having cops on them. 237 has occasional CHP units. 580 is pretty clear most of the time. HWY 17 going to SantaCruz has a lot of cops there: as fun as that road is for driving, speedlimit is 50-55, and cops just sit there at turn outs waiting to bust you. Best bet is to get a valentine1 radar detector, it saved my buddy and I quite a bit of tickets going to SD.

i got one in the supra on 680 going up towards san fran...the county was san mateo i think...if i remember right, it was like 85 in a 60 or something like that...

also got caught on the 101 going down to SLO once...that was like 85 or so...cop said i was doing 120+ but he said he can't prove that or something...

one more time on 101 near the san joe airport...got off that one...did traffic school...

once more near berryessa...did second level traffic school for that one...

got pulled over on 237...not for speeding tho...

also got pulled over for some stupid exhaust thing near wolf road in sunnyvale...cop gave me a ticket for intake not exhaust...after i argued with him for a while...had to go to the state referee...

i did manage to get a 150+ mph pass on the 880 racing another supra once...5th gear pass only...glad i never got caught there...

well, that's about it for me here in the bay...hawaii, is a diff story tho...


oh, btw...this was all in the supra...

Damnit, I know you. name just popped out of my head though, it's been a while. You have a black supra with the carbon fiber spoiler, right? And you owned a mustang in hawaii, and your cars have always been named Hyper(etc) right? Don't know if you remember me, I'm alex with the black neon r/t

Just don't get caught using one in Canada. The mounties aren't very understanding...(It's illegal there.)

Yeah, I was there with Kris (pKx) at one point when you guys met up with Alvin and Aaron and then went over to your place{?} when Perry was installing his AFC in the MR2 (before he wrecked it...how's his leg btw?)
And I've met up with you guys a few times before at In-N-Out

of course its legal....probably in all of 48 states....radar jammers are the ones that are illegal....some states they are legal though.

legal radar detectors go from 50 to 200 dollars....
