How to Avoid Speeding Tickets

While it may be okay to speed while you are on the race track, it isn’t okay to speed on the regular public roads, as you probably already know. However, even some professional race car drivers have a hard time completely refraining from those fast speeds that they are so used to.

So how do you avoid getting a speeding ticket while you’re on the road? Easy, just don’t speed. However, while it’s easy for some to read or hear someone give them this advice, they might still find it difficult following those words of wisdom. 

Why is it so hard to follow sometimes?

It can be difficult to follow the rules of the road when it comes to speeding because you can see so many other people around you speeding, driving faster, and switching lanes to go around you. Many people let this get beside them and speed up anyways because they don’t like people thinking that they are a slow driver, and they don’t want people going around them. Most people can also get away with going about 5 to 10 miles over the speed limit without an officer pulling them over so it makes it easy for people to get into the habit of speeding.

Don’t get caught off guard

However, you should keep in mind that while you might not automatically see a police officer around, they do hide in the most secluded areas and they are able to clock your speed so that they can easily catch someone who is going many miles over the speed limit. Once again, formula 1 racers may be at the highest risk of being pulled over for driving over the speed limit since they are accustomed to driving at high speeds on the race track. Just don’t do it! One way that you easily avoid getting caught speeding is by using radar detectors to detect when a police officer is nearby. You won’t have to worry about the embarrassment of a police officer pulling you over and signing you a fat ticket.

Different radar detectors used

Radar detectors that are available to buy nowadays come in a variety. They also come in various price ranges depending on the features and the brand. Some models will be good for Europe, while others would perform very good in US, so you should do your own research to find the best radar detector for your situation.
A corded radar detector is one that is quite commonly used because you can mount them to your windshield pretty easily. Generally there are two antenna stems on these systems so that they can easily and quickly pick up on when a police officer is nearby. They are easily plugged into the cigarette lighter outlet.

Next, there are the cordless detectors; which are quite popular, especially amongst motorcycle drivers. However, they generally don’t pick up on a signal as quickly as the corded radar detectors do. 

One thing that you should keep in mind if you are considering purchasing a radar detector, is that they are not legal to us in every state or country. Some states and countries have laws against using them, and if caught with a radar detector you can be fined.
