Whistler Radar Detector DE-1770S18Last night I bought a Whistler Radar Detector from Woot. I always wanted a radar detector.

The last time I got a speeding ticket was my trip to Google NYC - thanks Vanessa (just kidding).

But that ticket set me back over $200. So investing $50 in a radar detector, may be a good idea? I know, it won't help with non-moving violations but can be helpful for the Palisades Parkway.

I know it is not 100% but I'll take any advantage. I also believe they are illegal in the great state of CT?
