you should get a radar detector (i know they're illegal but who cares, so is outrunning the cops!)
those navy blue cop cars with the hidden writing on them are so easily picked up on the K band it's halarious.
The usual cop cars are a little harder because they're on the Ka band and some on the old X band which is hard to distinguish between a false alarm.

The ones i'm afraid of are the unmarked white crown vics!
They're using laser most of the time and by the time my detector picks that up i'm probably already tagged.

I'm finding i'm getting tagged alot with laser lately. Just in the past week i've been tagged about 11 times on my route to and from work. Be carefull everyone!

I got nabbed by a red Caravan in Oakville by some hard ass under covers last winter. They thought I was a drug dealer and they questioned me and my friend for a good hour

HaHa!... that's what you think. As-if it's that easy. When i'm cruising in the Bimmer, I never speed and CONSTANTLY get pulled over for questioning.

"is this thing street legal?"
"do you have Nitrous?"
"Is that cage real?"
"That muffler is too loud"
"what does it do in the quarter?"

I got a ticket for a rolling stop, no front plate, improper muffler, expired license sticker..... they just don't let up, but NEVER a speeding ticket.

I think that's when you approach a stop sign and don't do a complete stop.
You're moving slow enough that you consider it a stop, but the cops want to see the wheels come to a dead hault for a second or two!

The most stealthy cars I've seen the force use to date are new Impala's that are completely stock... even cheezy oversized mudflaps and plastic hubcaps. No visible radar boxes on the dash or rollbar... the strobes are in the tail lights and front grill.... scary how stock they look. Even the pig driving wears a baseball had and T-shirt!... I've seen them pull over someone passing me on the 407... twice!

are you serious?
I remember a few years ago my father told me that cops in unmarked or undercover cars, unless they were a detective, had to wear a police uniform because of somethng like the public complaining it was unfair that they could wear plain clothes while on duty and still pull people over, (this is probably bullshit, but there was a good reason for it that i just can't remember now)

perhaps things have changed because of all the speeding problems toronto has right now?

Oh yeah?? Listen to this, I was on the 401 and I was in the middle lane next to the fast lane and I see a late 90's cavalier with rice blue bulbs, tinted covers over his headlights, very dark tint, and a loud exhaust speeding in the fast lane, early in the morning. So I see him in my rear view mirror comming up fast, and what do I do just before he reaches me I dump it in 3rd ready to take him, and just before I step on the gas, I look over and its a uniformed COP!!!!!! Wow good thing I looked over!!

a couple of weeks ago i just washed my car and went to one park around here were i live on lakeshore to take some pictures. and i was going out of the park and got on the lakeshore and a older monte carlo was behind me. no visible flashlights on top or inside. and i just turned on lake shore and while still in 2nd gear changed lanes really quick.

and i stopped on the next light and had the windows down and i hear a siren i look over and the monte carlo was right beside me and the guy had a police baseball hat on, not a uniform. and asked me "how many tickets do u want today" i was like "none " and he said "DRIVE SENSIBLE!!!" i just said "OK" and tried to hide inside the car heheh. so i got lucky
