I love my house, neighborhood and neighbors. But I happen to live b/t (3 blocks away on one side) a county sheriff's office, and about 2 miles (on the other side of me), CHP. so almost everyday, I see a marked unit, some where on my daily commute route. I rarely go above 65 right around my neighborhood on the freeway, duh. but for me, knowing I have a lead foot and a twisty right hand, a radar detector is a must.
