Modern day driving has its pros and cons. There is a decent review here http://www.my5starproductreviews.com/escortpassport9500ix/ so go and check it out.
Having a nice new motor car can be the ultimate goal of some people. A nice sports car, convertible perhaps or a family saloon to get the kids to school. Lets face it if you own a vehicle then you are one of the lucky ones regardless of the brand of automobile there are plenty of people that would step in your shoes.
Some of the obvious money traps can be repair costs, car insurance, parking fines and even tow aways for parking in the wrong place. But by biggest bug bear is speeding fines.
Now don’t get me wrong I am not defending reckless driving nor speeding motorists. I’m writing from my perspective as a family guy who occasionally likes a good drive down an open road on a weekend. It was only the other week where I nearly cost myself a heap of problems. Nearly I hear you say…..
Well yes, I was literally seconds away from a speeding fine and points not to mention the hassle and stress that these silent crimes serve up. I was driving down the freeway and was traveling a steady 10km/h above the speed limit with no one else on the road when bam a siren went off!!!
Sorry Mr Police Officer
Now its not what you think that siren was not the ensuing police car or speed camera going off in a carefully setup speed trap! This was my new radar detecting piece of kit warning me about an imminent speed fine.
Less than a few hundred metres away lied a static state trooper car hidden in the underpass waiting for unsuspecting speeding motorists, ie me. Now count me lucky but this early warning radar detection from my escort passport 9500ix saved my bacon and has swiftly become the best present anyone has bought me. I had told my wife about this piece of kit some months previously and to my amazement my better half had done a bit of research online, which had led her to read a few positive reviews on Amazon and took the plunge and bought me this radar detection unit.
Birthday Present on my Radar
It also helped my best friend owned one of these so I know and my wife also knew that he never shut up about it. I have to say since this device has been setup in my car I have the confidence to drive again. There’s nothing more demoralizing that being hit for a ticket to make up your local police forces monthly targets. I had been guilty in the past for a few speeding fines two punished and one let off so I see myself as a prime candidate for being an owner of the new Passport 9500ix. Its not the cheapest on the market at over 400 dollars but this unit has saved me this already and its only 3 months old.
Escort Buying Summary
Now there are plenty of other radar detectors on the market and Escort / Passport make other models so please do your own research for whats good for you and your budget, but cheaper radar models can have poor sensitivity and use cheaper components. This generally leads to cost savings and an overall cheaper price but you will be buying an inferior product.
