I have Laser capability as part of my radar detector, but in general Laser detectors are pretty well regarded as useless. By the time you hear the signal, you've been nailed. Unlike radar, you really don't get any advance notice and time to slow down. If it's legal in your area, Radar is a great investment assuming you get a decent unit (and you usually get Laser for free anyway).

I never met a radar detector that I couldn" beat, and I did it for 25 yrs.
My feeling is your just wasting your money.

Well, maybe you're craftier than most, but my radar detector has saved my butt on numerous occasions when I might not have been quite as attentive to my speed as I should have been (that's my story and I'm sticking to it [}:)]).

I use valentine 1, I agree with comments made earlier, Laser detection is pretty much useless, by the time you hear the beep, it is already too late! So bottom line is, memorize their favorite spots and look out for assistance from other drivers when they flash their lights feverishly to warn you of impeding danger....[8D]

thrile,
since tou bought an MB you 've got plenty of money to pay all your police tickets.
What i'm suggesting is to drive slower.
laser stuff is completely waste of money.

haha! very well said KEKROPA!!! well i ve got some speeding tickets myself as well but got away very easily!! no, it s not that i own a beatiful car like you do guys but i hold a US driving permit. so, having you busted for speeding here in greece with that kind of license is silly cos neither the point system cannot be applied to my license nor a pay expensive fines cos i say that im in greece only for vacation. clever isnt it?

i welcome you to the forum, all athens members!

take care
drive safely

Greek 1,
You are under arrest! Turn in your phony driver's license and report to my office in Anthens tomorrow at 9:00 am. We know how to treat you scofflaws.

what is the purpose of a radar detector? Think about it, would you go into a bad neighborhood just because you now carry a gun? Does it make it safer? A radar detector helps (I have one) but you need to be smart, attentive and most of all respect the law... and if you buy that, I have some real estate I'd like to sell you... LOL
