They only ticket outside of rush hour.
If you are doing over 81 in a 70 or 86 in a 75 mph zone they will pull you over and ticket you in some cases.
I was last pulled over for 91 in a 70; I got a stern warning with a question of the top speed of my vehicle. I informed him of the top speed, verified on a test track.
I have the latest version Valentine One detector and always run the Waze app.
The only reason he got me was due to being on an on ramp rushing into traffic and not turning on Ka band until he painted ME.

I use a jammer. Never fails. No worries about instant-ons or lasers.
You still have to be vigilant and always be on the look out. All the unit does is give you chance to defeat speed detection. I don't depend on it at night mainly because of all the unmarked units out there.

Now, back to Shrox's big move!

That may be because the LEO's don't want to leave themselves exposed for long periods of time in the #3 murder rate (per 100k, 2015 numbers) city in the US.

We're not moving to a big city.

I wasn't speaking of inside the city limits of Detroit, which is a total dump only surpassed by CLEVELAND as a TURD PIT.
This is I-75 20+ miles north of Detroit and 96/696 10 miles North of Detroit as well.
Low crime, high $$ areas.

True radar jammers are highly illegal.
Real ones are only available in kit form.
You can build jammers that amplify the power signal so high they will actually overload and destroy radar guns into a smoking heap of circuit boards.

What are you going on about anyway? Sorry if California isn't good enough for you.

The biggest problem facing California is not wildfires and earthquakes. It is its natural wonders, climate and resources coupled with an overly generous welfare system that will be its downfall.

That, and the Zombies.

So, do you still have the "shuttle craft". That seems like it would be great for visiting the countryside.

as to GH, I wouldn't worry about him. I feel much safer from any "toilet pranks" he may want to play by living in a place he complains about and would never visit.

I sold it last year. Now just waiting for the rain to stop, might be three more days. Then it's off to NorCal!

Best of luck on the move!

There's a fairly active rocket club in Eugene, FWIW. Might be closer than Livermore.
