Do you believe in radar detectors? After I got two tickets for speeding, I decided it is time for me to have a radar detector installed in my car. Radar detectors give the driver timely alerts to warn him about how speedily he is driving. Thus, the driver can slow down and drive safely. I did some research and found out that you can get very good radar detectors but they can cost you a lot of money. I was not ready to spend so much on a radar detector.
So, I decided to go for a cheap radar detector. Cheap doesn’t mean that the radar detectors lack in any features. Neither does it mean that the radar detectors last only for two or three months. They are reasonably good products that have good features and last long. The advantage of going for cheap radar detectors is that it does not cost you a fortune, and if there is any issue with it, you can easily replace it with a new one without feeling guilty.
Even if you buy an expensive model, if it stops working, the chances of getting it repaired are very less. So, it is better to go for a cheap product, right?
It was after few days of researching I found out a radar detector that costs around $50. Yes, you heard it right, it is just 50$. If you go for a high end radar detector, you might have to pay more than $600. Be it a costly one or a cheap one, you have to make sure your radar detector meets the following requirements. Without that, there is no use of having a radar detector installed in your car.
When shopping for a radar detector, make sure the radar detector you decided to buy can detect all types of radar signals. There are manufacturers who guarantee that their products detect up to 9 bands. All this is just a marketing gimmick. Never fall for such statements.
Range is another factor you need to consider. You should make sure your radar detector covers a good distance; otherwise you will land up in front of cops with all the evidence they need to give you a ticket.
Only expensive radar detectors offer guarantee, so you don’t have to worry about that factor here. By spending around $50 to $100 you can get a cheap but feature full radar detector that can be easily installed in your car. So, why worry about speed tickets? Just spend a few dollars and drive freely without fear.
