In today's high speed, gotta have it now society, the desire to protect oneself from a speeding ticket it growing ever greater. The best way to avoid the dreaded speeding ticket, you need to have a radar detector. You need the best that you can afford, but what is that, how do you choose? The following tips will help you pick the best radar detector for you.

1- Do you remember the last speeding ticket that you received? Do you remember thinking that you should have had a radar detector? Do you remember thinking that you didn't even know how to start looking or what to look for when getting one? Well, life just got a little easier; follow these tips when you decide you don't want another speeding ticket to remember.

2- Price is also a consideration for most people. However, the old adage, you get what you pay for, is incredibly true in the case of radar detectors. When you think about the money that is spent when you get a speeding ticket (the cost of the ticket, time away from work to pay for it, increased insurance costs, etc), it is worth it for most people to spend the extra money to buy a high quality radar detector. That being said, most detectors can be found starting at around $90.00.

3- The internet is the best source of information for most people. There are a number of sites that offer expert testimony regarding the options and models that will best suit your specific needs and budget.

4- Your local police post can also be an excellent source of information, namely they will be able to tell you if the unit you are considering the purchase of is legal in your state. Not all radar detectors are necessarily legal in all states, especially those that also include a radar jammer. It may seem a little odd to ask the police about the best radar detector to avoid themw with, but it's better to be safe than sorry and buy something that is illegal without knowing it.

5- An interesting fact to keep in mind when deciding whether to purchase a radar detector, there are over 100,000 radar detectors in use by law enforcement everyday in this country. That number is steadily climbing by approximately 20,000 more every year. Are these odds that you want to be up against the next time you are speeding?
