Realize that you bought yourself a radar/laser detector, not a 'POLICE' detector.bentol888 said:So, I bought a cobra and as I was driving back from Dallas to Austin I Must have past by half a dozen cops and it only went off 3 times! One police car I past by was writing a ticket out to another motorist at the time. Does anybody out there no why it goes off some of the time and not all? Kinda defeats the purpose. thanks.
The cops you passed where your detector did not go off means they did not have their radar guns on. Also realize that when it comes to laser, when your detector goes off, the majority of the time it means you've been nailed if it's not falsing, which does happen with a lot of rear brakelights and occassionally from the neon signs in storefronts.
